Santa Fe Local’s View: Instagram and 2015 Passport to the Arts
This year’s Canyon Road Passport to the Arts takes place Friday, May 8th and Saturday, May 9th and marks the first #CanyonRoadPassport Instameet. Here at the Inn of the Governors, I am excited to be participating in the Instagram Scavenger Hunt with the Canyon Road Merchants. Join me from 4:30pm – 7pm, outside of Canyon Road Contemporary Gallery (403 Canyon Road), as they hand out Passports which will have clues of art to photograph and upload to Instagram. Be sure to use the #CanyonRoadPassport when posting your photographs. Complete your Passport to the Arts to earn a raffle ticket so you can win prizes donated by the wonderful merchants on Canyon Road. What better way to spend the day or even both days than attending openings, exhibitions and/or receptions with our diverse artist community.
Santa Fe’s historic Canyon Road galleries will have more than 100 artists participating over the course of the weekend. Here’s a video from the 2013’s event so you can get an idea of all the fun events that will be happening. This is a perfect event for the whole family!
On Saturday experience the famous “Artist Quick Draw” event from 11am – 1pm at over seven locations. In just over two short hours, you can experience more than 50 artists creating an original work of art from beginning to end. There will also be five local schools with young musicians providing music from 1-2:30pm and a cocktail reception at 4pm. Register to bid in advance, for the auction, at the big tent in the Wiford Gallery. The live auction begins at 5pm.
I hope to see you there. Safe travels, Deb Swanson
