Art Attack!

2013 Summer Arts Preview

May 21, 2013, 12:00 am

t’s easy to forget the bounty of cultural offerings a city like Santa Fe offers. For me, a reminder came recently aboard a Southwest Airlines plane, after I picked up a copy of their in-flight magazine, Spirit. Designed, like all of its counterparts, to lure visitors to top destinations—and empty the pockets of their respective tourism offices—the glossy mag included a seven-page spread on New Mexico. It tipped its hat to our “treasure trove of attractions,” and referred to our own backyard as a “real-life playground.” It also served as a reminder that, for us lucky enough to live here, a world-class experience is but a short drive or walk away (take that, Flagstaff!).

Longing for a digest-worthy jaunt of your own? Strap yourself in and peruse our top picks for what is certainly going to be a memorable 93 days of summer. As far as variety goes, get ready. The dog days are chockfull with something for just about everybody—from big-name movie stars (though sadly no Rob Schneider) to Hamburgers (the people) and Mozart sandwiches (the sandwiches). So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and play.
