ABC Wednesday-"I": Incredible Imagination


Alan Houser's sculptures can be found everywhere in this fair city: museums, courtyards, churches, and even on the street. The city of Santa Fe and I have a love affair with this man's work! The collage shows  pieces of art that are in the IAIA museum courtyard across from the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi. The sculpture on the bottom is entitled "IMIGRATION" which shows once again the INCREDIBLE IMAGINATION of this treasured artist!

  3. Thank you for sharing these. I am sure Sharon, who has posted on her Phoenix Daily Photo quite a few of Alan Houser's work that is on display at the Desert Botanical Garden.

    I think they have Alan Houser on the New Mexico artist walk of fame in the sidewalk in front of the art museum that is across the street from the Territorial Governor's Palace across from the square in downtown Santa Fe.

  4. I recognize the corn grinder and the large photo is just like one called "migration" at the Desert Botanical Garden here in Phoenix. He certainly does have an incredible imagination.
