I saw Chicago's, and I think it's universally top 3 or 5 for sure.

Yeah, a crap list indeed. Houston is the only Texas city that is typically high on these lists for arts. And putting Santa Fe on a list with big cities is ridiculous. Especially over cities like LA, Philly, and Cleveland.

Nope. Santa Fe belongs. The town is overrun with artists, artisans and craftspeople, and international connoisseurs know it. It's not famous as an art city because it isn't as big as New York, but if half the galleries in town can sell to an international market of buyers who are personal contacts, you're one of the top art towns in the country. There are dozens of much, much larger cities around the US that are dwarfed by its' prominence.

It ain't the size of the city - it's the caliber of what's there, and whether folks with $ to spend know that. You don't have to be a big city to achieve that. You just have to be good.
