in the mining town of Morenci, Arizona, Ted DeGrazia became one of
Arizona's most prominent painters, illustrators, and graphic artists,
resulting in his studio gallery being listed on the National Register of
Historic Places. He lived most of his life near Tucson, and worked in
his studio, open to the public, that he called "The Gallery of the Sun."
His signature work is paintings and illustrations of 'angel-like'
Southwest children, many of them Indian and Hispanic. Ted DeGrazia
passed away in 1982.

this date, by those that are familiar with the man and his artwork. I
remember seeing these in the magazines, as I was an Arizona girl at that
time. I think most Arizonians are familiar with Ted DeGrazia.
