The Allan Houser Compound, a short drive south of Santa Fe, features the work of Native American artist Alan Houser.  His work is featured in the Sculpture Garden and studio there.  If you want to see Houser’s work, the Compound is open to visits by appointment only. You’ll get to walk through the Gardens on your own. Or wait for their annual open house on Santa Fe Indian Market Weekend when admission is free and you can stroll through the gardens on your own.

You can also visit the Allan Houser Gallery at 125 Lincoln Avenue in Santa Fe. They’re open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm.

Do you have a favorite Allan Houser sculpture?

      There are incredible sculptures all over the grounds and more work in the studio. We’ll do a post on the Compound in the future with a lot of photos.

    That compound is so wonderful. With all the great stuff to do that’s actually in Santa Fe, it’s easy to forgot that there’s also things worth driving to just outside it.

      There is a ton of stuff to see outside Santa Fe. We try to get to it place by place in the blog. It’s a slow process. If you go further down NM 14, you’ll get to the quirky town of Madrid and then almost to I-40, Tinkertown Museum, a real folk art treasure. We have a post on it. We also just put up a post on the Classical Gas Museum, another Northern NM treasure.
