Santa Fe Top 10 Art and Architectu​re Destinatio​n

Santa Fe has been ranked in the Top 10 Art and Architecture Destinations in the World by Hotwire. The highest ranking US city.

But we already knew that…

LONDON | Fri Aug 24, 2012 11:51am EDT (Reuters) – From Picasso in St. Petersburg to sculptures in Sydney, Hotwire.com has compiled a list of the top 10 places to admire famous art around the world. Reuters has not endorsed this list.

1. Paris, France.  It may seem obvious, but there’s a reason why Paris always ends up on top of most art-lovers’ lists. Start with one of the largest and most well-known museums in the world, the Louvre (Musee du Louvre). This museum displays an estimated 380,000 objects and 35,000 works of art including Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. And of course, the Louvre Palace (Palais du Louvre) is one of the most famous architectural works of art in its own right. Beyond the Louvre, visitors can experience impressionist and post-impressionist French art at the Musee d’Orsay, the surrealist movement at Espace Dali or view modern works by artists like Pablo Picasso at the Musee d’Art Moderne.

2. Florence, ItalyKnown as the “cradle of the Renaissance,” Florence is overflowing with beautiful pieces of art and architecture. Before even setting foot inside a museum, visitors can take a tour of Firenze to bask in all of the great architecture that makes up the city. From palaces to monuments to religious buildings, the city itself is a giant museum of master architectural work that is sure to leave folks breathless. Once inside these beautiful buildings, be sure to visit Galleria dell’ Accademia (Academy Gallery), which is home to Michelangelo’s David, or the Galleria degli Uffizi (Uffizi Galleries), to view works from artists such as Giotto, Botticelli, Raphael and Leonardo da Vinci.

3. Vatican CitySt. Peter’s Square is an architectural masterpiece designed by Gian Bernini in the seventeenth century, but it’s the Vatican museums and churches that are the stars. These museums hold an immense collection of sculptures, paintings and artefacts that have been collected by the Roman Catholic Church for centuries. This includes some of history’s most renowned works of art, such as Michelangelo’s painted ceiling at the Sistine Chapel and the Last Judgment. Famous works by Raphael can also be found throughout the Vatican but are mostly concentrated in the Apostolic Palace. And don’t forget, just outside the Vatican walls sits Rome, which could stand alone as an art lover’s delight with its museums and Roman architecture.

4. Berlin, GermanyOver the last 20 years, Berlin has emerged as one of the biggest art venues in Europe with an impressive selection of new architecture, exhibits and art galleries. But even with its new art scene, Berlin will always have strong ties to the past, which can be seen at one of the 17 Berlin State Museums that are divided into five clusters. Museumsinsel (Museum Island), a complex of five museums, is the largest in Europe, and is comprised of the Altes Museum, Neues Museum, Alte Nationalgalerie, Bode Museum, and Pergamon Museum, which were all built on the site of the original city settlement. The museums’ collections range from Roman and Greek Classical Antiquities, to 19th century sculptures and paintings, to prehistory and early history.

5. Amsterdam, the NetherlandsAmsterdam is a great destination to experience the out-of-the-ordinary, and the art is no exception. If you are craving something a little unusual, The Florescent Art Museum, also known as “Electric Ladyland,” is a tribute to Jimi Hendrix and has a vast collection of psychedelic pieces. But the Dutch also have a wealth of classics, and gave the world such famous painters as Rembrandt and Van Gogh. The Van Gogh Museum displays the most extensive collection of his work including 200 paintings, 550 sketches and hundreds of letters from Van Gogh to his brother Theo.

6. St. Petersburg, RussiaSt. Petersburg is arguably one of the most picturesque cities in the world, and at its center is the State Hermitage Museum. This museum contains three million pieces, including works by Leonardo Da Vinci, Pablo Picasso and Nicolas Poussin. It is also one of the most extensive museums with objects from around the world, ranging in time from pre-historic to post-modern. St. Petersburg also has a wealth of museums dedicated to Russian art, with the State Russian Museums housing the largest collection of pieces from Russia. For something out-of-the-box, be sure to stop by the Museum of Non-Conformist Art, which features the art movement under the Soviet Union.

7. Santa Fe, New Mexico. The community of Santa Fe has long been considered both a haven for creativity and an important gathering place for the American art community, especially those who love Native art. In August, the annual Santa Fe Indian Market attracts thousands of visitors to the city for the largest showing of authentic Native art in the world. Other art enthusiasts with eclectic tastes can venture to the art district on Canyon Road, which features more than 100 art galleries and studios. Finally, Santa Fe was home to many well-known artists including Georgia O’Keeffe. O’Keeffe became famous for her depictions of enlarged flowers and paintings inspired by her time in New Mexico, which are on exhibition at The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum.

8. Los Angeles, California.  As one of the most eclectic cities in the United States, Los Angeles is a giant melting pot of art that is just waiting to be explored, with a lot of it on the cutting edge of modernity. Visit Chris Burden’s iconic Urban Light display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in West Hollywood, or travel downtown to the Museum of Contemporary Art MOCA.L, where artists such as Banksy and Tim Burton have shown their work. LA is home to not only one, but two Getty Museums. Whether travellers feel like exploring the beautiful gardens at the Getty Villa, or admiring the collections of European and American art at the Getty Center, both venues provide breathtaking views of the City of Angels.

And don’t leave Sydney without touring its most famous piece of architecture, The Sydney Opera House.

10. Tokyo, JapanTokyo offers art enthusiasts a chance to experience amazing Asian styles that were created independently of the West.

Legal Tender reopens in Lamy

Just 18 miles south of Santa Fe, a piece of history has been restored.The Legal Tender Saloon & Restaurant in Lamy reopened in March after 14 years.

The reopening of the beloved saloon is due in large part to the efforts of Cindy and John Jednak, according head chef Charles Thompson. But it was also a community effort.

The couple ceaselessly fundraised throughout the communities of Galisteo and Eldorado, and the people responded.

The restaurant is now back in full swing Thursday through Sunday.

“We are still trying to carry on the tradition. We have two-step Thursdays. We have bands every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For brunch on Sundays, we have bands come play on the patio. We have different bands, from country to rockabilly,” Thompson said.

There is a stage in the main dining room, and all of the bands that perform are local.

The place still maintains its Old West saloon atmosphere. One of the only new things about the building is the new fire system. The bar still maintains its 1880s glamour, and the poker room in the back still sports bullet holes that have been there for decades. Every Thursday night, one can still find people playing a game of Faro back there, despite of betting at https://uk.mansionbet.com/sports/greyhounds/ has got so popular recently.

The atmosphere brings in a diverse crowd, according to Thompson. Anyone from tourists to local cowboys will come in on a given night. “It’s funny, you’ll come in on the weekend, and you will see the whole bar lined up with cowboys in cowboy hats drinking wine. I walk out there and see cowboys drinking wine and think ‘What’s wrong with this picture?’ ” he said, laughing.

The Legal Tender hosted a large Fourth of July barbeque at which bands also played. That brought out a crowd of about 500 strong. Another barbeque is in the works for Labor Day weekend.

The activity is drawing people who were regulars years ago.

“We have people who came here back in the 1980s coming back and saying how glad they are that this place has reopened,” Thompson said. “It’s nothing but fun.”

And, of course, there is always the food. The menu at The Legal Tender is one that is always changing based on what is in season, according to Thompson. He likes to bring in food from the local farms and integrate it into the menu so as to stay local and sustainable. He also takes a trip to the fish warehouse in Santa Fe every weekend to pick up the freshest catch for the weekly fish specials.

If the food and music is not enough, diners can also visit the Lamy Railroad & History Museum, which resides in the same building and contains a lot of railroad artifacts from the time when Lamy was a railroad town.

Both the museum and restaurant run as nonprofit organizations. The Jednaks have made the restaurant one of their projects through their nonprofit, Learning Mind, which focuses on promoting education for underprivileged youth.

This means that all of the people who work in front of the house are doing so on a purely volunteer basis. The only paid staff is the kitchen crew.

According to Thompson, the volunteers are people who really just want to see the place open and busy again. “They just like what they do. … It puts Lamy back on the map and brings people out to the town. It was such a dead town for such a long time,” he said.

There are about 15 volunteers, and they range in all ages. On weekends, you will sometimes see Peter, an 8-year-old, bussing tables.

The entire operation also still runs on donations. Thompson pointed out the umbrellas on the patio, which were all donated by customers and have the donors’ names on them.

As the only business currently residing in Lamy, it certainly is a community affair.

Cafe Fina Opens in Old RFN Spot –

New cafe opens near Eldorado

The grills are fired up again at the former home of Real Food Nation, a renovated gas station-turned-restaurant space near Eldorado.

The owners of Real Food Nation, which closed its doors in March, have leased the space near the intersection of Old Las Vegas Highway and U.S. 285 to a couple of restaurant business veterans who opened Cafe Fina on Independence Day. Annamaria and Murphy O’Brien said they envision Cafe Fina as a neighborhood meeting place that serves “modern comfort food” in an area that desperately needed more options for cuisine.

Blyth Timken, one of Real Food Nation’s owners, told a reporter in March that “novice mistakes” doomed her business. But the O’Briens both have worked in restaurants for years — Murphy since he was a kid who spent summers helping out at his sister’s restaurant in Dallas. He remembers cooking up hash browns and eggs in a sweltering kitchen and says his experiences inspired a career in food and many of the menu items at Cafe Fina, named for the Fina gas station that used to occupy the site.

Annamaria said this is the first time the couple has gone into business together. “I was scared, but it’s really been a nice collaboration,” she said. “When this came up, I was Murphy’s biggest cheerleader because I really wanted to stay in Santa Fe.”

The couple met in October 2005, and by the beginning of 2006 they were married. They have two children.

The menu items include basic New Mexican brunch fare such as a breakfast burrito and an enchilada plate, with a few unexpected dishes such as a tilapia sandwich and ricotta pancakes, also known as “cloud cakes.” All of the baked goods (cookies, lemon bars and sour cream coffee cake, to name a few) are made from scratch, in-house, with the exception of the croissants.

“These are things I’ve craved from meals I’ve had in my life,” said Murphy, former manager of Mu Du Noodles in Santa Fe.

The O’Briens said they plan to expand the menu to include quiches and more sandwich and salad options. They plan to open a drive-up window and offer a service in which parents can order box lunches for their children that the pair will either deliver or that parents can pick up. They also want to obtain a beer and wine license and start serving dinner (the restaurant currently closes at 3 p.m.).

Still, their business model is to “keep it simple,” which they said the owners of Real Food Nation failed to do. Real Food Nation grew much of the restaurant’s ingredients on-site and the owners also operated an adjacent restaurant called the Supper Club, which closed along with Real Food Nation.

“They were taking a lot on,” Murphy said. “They were trying to operate two restaurants and a garden. We’re just doing this cafe.”

Murphy knows what it is like to start a restaurant and see it fail. In 1998, he closed the doors to Atalaya Restaurant and Bakery, which he owned and operated for three years in the space on South Guadalupe Street now occupied by Whole Hog. He said he, too, failed to keep things simple with that business and took on too much.

“We took over a building that needed a lot of work. It had no commercial kitchen,” he said. “This building was ready to go.”

This time he relied on the kindness of friends to help him with everything from renovations to designing a Cafe Fina website. “Everyone’s so invested in us succeeding,” Murphy said.

Real Food Nation’s owners were two of the biggest supporters. “They made us an offer we couldn’t refuse,” Murphy said. “They want us to succeed.”

During the interview Stephanie and Joe Galarza stopped in for a bite after going on a bike ride in the area. Joe ordered a cheeseburger and Stephanie got the tilapia. They said they make it a point to support local businesses.

“This is a nice little spot to catch a bite on the way back to Santa Fe,” Joe said.
