After motoring around town (sometimes along streets with instantly melting and reappearing snow cover, apparently not photographed entirely in one day) I selected this view including the New Mexico Museum of Art. 

The Museum, just one of four state-supported museums in Santa Fe, is in the next block on the left side of the street. I think it’s one of the most attractive examples of the iconic Pueblo Revival style of architecture, featuring rounded corners, irregular parapets, thick battered walls and projecting wooden roof beams, which is very popular in Santa Fe. If you click on this link to Google Streetview, then click a couple of times on the arrow that appears on the street, you can travel to the next block, then pan the camera left to see the front of the museum.
