Santa Fe's Remarkable Art Feast

Guests of The Hacienda Nicholas Bed & Breakfast Inn flock to Santa Fe for a myriad of reasons, with art and cuisine being particularly alluring. During the upcoming ARTfeast, running from February 22-24, 2013, you will be immersed in a weekend of fabulous food, beautiful art by renowned Santa Fe artists, house tours, golfing and high fashion - adding to the fun is the knowledge that all the proceeds from this weekend extravaganza are donated to fund a great cause.

It may hard to believe that Santa Fe, a city with such a solid foundation in the arts, experiences a profound lack of funding for arts in its schools, yet such is the case.  ARTfeast began in 1998 as an attempt to address this shortfall when a few galleries began asking for donations during their Friday night openings.  Since then the program has grown tremendously and has raised over one million dollars to help fund art classes in Santa Fe's public schools.

The highlight of the weekend is the Edible Art tour, a collaboration of forty top Canyon Road galleries with over forty of Santa Fe's best restaurants and caterers, each showcasing their most noteworthy talents.  This presentation of fine food and art will take place on Friday, February 22, from 5-8pm.  Tickets are $35 each if purchased in advance, and $40 if purchased on the day of the event.

Other events include Friday's Art of Fashion: Runway Show & Luncheon ($100/ticket), the Free Art of Home Tour offered on Saturday and Sunday, and Sunday's Artist's Champagne Brunch and Auction taking place at Hotel Santa Fe for $75/person.
