Taos Founders: Return to Sacred Places

Gallery: Dorothy and Jack Brandenburg Gallery

In keeping with the “Return to Sacred Places,” theme selected by the Town of Taos for the 2010 travel season, The Harwood Museum of Art presents a showcase of masterworks from its collection, focusing on the Taos Founders and their painterly interpretations of sacred places in Northern New Mexico. During the first part of the 20th Century, the landscape and native cultures of Taos attracted artists. These are the artists who came to Taos in search of nature over technology, and eloquently portrayed the sacredness of the landscape and the indigenous cultures.
