Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi in Santa Fe debuts Art Chat meet-and-greet

Writing about the intersection of art and travel, I’m fortunate to be on the road about twice a month on average visiting museums, galleries, fairs and festivals. Wherever I go, I’m always asked where my favourite place to visit is. That’s a long list, but I always start with Santa Fe, New Mexico.

My December 2023 stay Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi right on the Plaza in Santa Fe, may have been my most memorable hotel stay ever. I like hotels and have stayed in hundreds, branded interstate exit hotels and Ritz-Carlton’s. Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi is the nicest hotel I’ve ever stayed in. As I’ve written previously, its luxury involves more than a hefty price tag.

Here’s some exciting news about the property. Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi has debuted a new initiative, Art Chat, an on-property series designed to be a platform for local artisans and craftsmen to showcase their work to the guests of the hotel. Rosewood Inn knows something about that. The art and architectural details throughout the property are astonishing.

Now, every Thursday from 4:30 – 6:00 pm, different artists and artisans will pop up in the hotel’s Library – an AMAZING space – allowing guests to see and purchase their diverse works and meet with the artists and creators themselves.

The series debuted on March 21, 2024, with the jewelry brand Ford Forlano. Known for creating and experimenting with lesser-used materials such as polymer clay to develop one-of-a-kind necklaces and bracelets, Ford Forlano displayed pieces from their latest collection sharing their inspiration with guests in attendance.

Throughout the next several months, many more local artists are scheduled to be a part of the series, including Native American painter of contemporary art and sculptor Doug Coffin, jewelry designer Mia Hebib of Oblik Atelier, wood artist Jeddadiah Emanuel, glass artist and sculptor Nick Leonoff, and more.

As Santa Fe is a city renowned for its vibrant arts scene and rich cultural heritage, Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi has always integrated the work of local artisans into its design, ambiance, and guest experience, and this new program is another example of this ever-evolving commitment to support Santa Fe’s artistic community.
