Our Centennial is a celebration of the community that has sustained us.

Whether you have been coming to the Harwood for years or planning your first visit, there are a variety of ways to connect, learn, and create together. Learn more about the ways you can get involved below. Everyone is invited!

Harwood 100 Open Wall

June 1 • August 3 • November 2

All local artists are invited to exhibit their work in this self–curated exhibition series that honors Harwood’s democratic origins.

Harkening back to Harwood’s 1940s history when anyone from Taos County could hang a work of art in the galleries as part of a $5.00 annual membership, we invite our community to three opportunities to participate in an open hanging of their own artworks in the Joyce and Sherman Scott Gallery. Space will be limited!
