remains the biggest star in the town’s creative constellation, the galaxy continues to diversify. Many galleries along Canyon Road, like Manitou Galleries, whose owner, Bob Nelson, also curates and manages the Nelson Museum of the West in Cheyenne, Wyoming, still specialize in traditional and contemporary Southwestern art. Others, like the world-renowned Nedra Matteucci Galleries, have a more cosmopolitan fl air, and showcase everything from masters of American impressionism and Modernism to Russian realist paint- ings and Native American jewelry. But perhaps the coolest development is how the arts scene is no


longer confi ned to the downtown and Canyon Road. The newish Railyard Arts District is home to a group of contemporary art galleries as well as SITE Santa Fe, an internationally known art space. Groups like Meow Wolf, an arts production collaborative that produces immersive, multi- media art experiences, is in the midst of renovating an old bowl- ing alley on the more industrial west side of town.

changed? The rhythm of the place. The air still smells like roasted chiles every fall, when farmers from down south roast


their wares in parking lots across town. The town still goes to bed early and gets up late (forget about getting something good to eat after 9 p.m.). And it remains as unharried as ever by the on-de- mand pace of modern life. The other constant is the people. Thanks in part to the citywide


living wage ordinance, which allows artists to earn a living while doing their craft on the side, and the nearby Los Alamos National Lab, which literally employs thousands of Ph.D.s, we have more than our fair share of jewelers, fi lmmakers and nuclear physicists. But it’s not just the artists, scientists and craftsmen that lend Santa Fe its distinctive texture; it’s everybody who’s chosen to carve out his or her own unique niche here in town. A few years ago, I remember reading that longtime resident Cormac McCarthy once remarked that “there’s good craic” here. Craic? I had to look it up (it’s Gaelic for lively chat or conversation), but he’s totally right. McCarthy was specifi cally referring to the Nobel laureates, MacArthur geniuses and other faculty members of the Santa Fe Institute, the think tank where he hangs out and writes, but I like to think he’d have said the same exact thing about the rest of us.
