Historic Canyon Road Paint & Sculpt Out

Over 100 artists, both gallery represented and independent, will create works of art in one of the nation’s largest artist demonstrations.

NEW IN 2014

A Friday Night Art Walk offers the opportunity to experience the art of Canyon Road at many galleries that will stay open late because so many artists are in town. Attend artist openings & receptions. Meet artists, observe them at work, and view new exhibits.

Sculptors are introduced to the roster of artists in 2014. The event has been renamed the Paint Out & Sculpt Out! Many sculptors will reveal all or a part of their fascinating process for the first time on Canyon Road.

Flash Art is a public-participation event scheduled for 2:55 at 701 Canyon. Plan to be there Saturday for an exuberant finale to a perfectly artistic day.


More than 150 artists will spend Saturday on Canyon Road demonstrating their skill, talents, and passions. Experience the creative process of established and emerging artists – including painters, sculptors, weavers, jewelers, potters, and carvers.

The Paint Out & Sculpt Out celebrates the tradition of painting & sculpting “en plein air” that began a century ago on this iconic Santa Fe trail.


What has a hundred legs, moves only to music, and marches up Canyon Road every October? Answer: Santa Fe's Public School Marching Bands, of course! Join in the beat at this year's annual Historic Canyon Road Paint Out!

The SFPS Music Fest opens at noon with a festival parade complete with marching bands, musicians & singers from the Santa Fe Public Schools. State & local dignitaries who will be in the parade are:
     Mayor Javier Gonzales
     City Counselor Joseph Maestas
     Cabinet Secretary Veronica Gonzales, Dept. of Cultural Affairs
     Cabinet Secretary Monique Jacobson, Dept. of Tourism
     Dr. Joel Boyd, Supt of SF Public Schools

Canyon Road will be closed to vehicular traffic beginning at 11:30 am because of the parade. Shuttle service from Paseo de Peralta to East Palace Avenue will be available at all other times.

Students from the Santa Fe Public Schools Music Education Program will perform on Canyon Road in conjunction with the 2014 SFPS Music Fest. Music Fest is an awareness- and fund-raising effort for music education in the public schools. Music Fest is now entering its fifth year as a tradition in Santa Fe
