Santa Fe New Mexico’s iconic Inn and Spa at Loretto announces its new Artist in Residence Program, which offers hands on, interactive sessions with local artists in their lobby studio every week at no cost to hotel guests.

The Inn and Spa at Loretto, managed by Destination Hotels & Resorts, is now offering a new program for guests called “Artist in Residence”, highlighting the work of nationally known artists as they interact with guests.

During a total of four or more hours, a professional artist works on a piece of art while communicating their
techniques, methods and stories with guests in the Loretto Studio, across from the concierge desk in the lobby.
The $14/day service fee paid by all guests covers the cost of the program, therefore there is no additional cost to
hotel guests.

Santa Fe is known as the country’s third largest art market and is home to over 200 galleries and 12 museums
as well as a renowned culinary arts scene.

Upcoming 2012 Artists in Residence programming includes, but is not limited to, the following:
