“Site Santa Fe is a world class modern gallery that exhibits installations, visual arts and films. It's an amazing space and resource in our community. Also, you can go there for free on Saturday morning, 10-12. It's right across from the farmer's market. You could get something to eat there and then just walk over to Site. ”
