SITE Santa Fe opened in 1995 with the aim of curating the only biennial of contemporary art in the United States. Eight biennials later, SITE has drawn significant attention in the art community at home and abroad. Takashi Murakami, Andy Goldsworthy, Robert Ashley, Bridget Riley and many others have all been featured in the wildly successful biennials. SITE’s education and outreach programs continue to inspire young artists and art aficionados, including a Young Curators Program and a popular Zine Program, which connects high schoolers with artists showing at the space. Admission is reasonable at $10 for general admission and $5 for students and seniors. Check the SITE website for more information on upcoming lectures and exhibitions. (MS)
