Spring Community Day

Event Details

Everyone is invited to welcome the arrival of Spring with a day of art making, performance, and activities for all ages at the museum!

Featuring FREE admission for all Taos County Residents as part of Harwood’s Taos Free Sunday program and activities inspired by the current exhibitions Outriders: Legacy of the Black Cowboy and William Herbert “Buck” Dunton: A Mainer Goes West.

The day will include a musical performance by Steve Cormier, Make Your Own Bandana with Laurel Taylor from Wilde Ink, Story Time with the Taos Public Library, Teen-led tours and other engaging activities throughout the museum.

Steve Cormier will perform songs gathered from the open range in his show titled Heroes and Heroines, Cowboys and Cowgirls, Then and Now. Some have been passed down from cowboys who worked the West in the 19th and 20th centuries while others are inspired by Cormier’s own experience as a ranch and farm hand. Full of adventure, love, death, and tributes to their mounts, these songs will have you tapping your toes and learning something new about life in the West.

From 2pm-3:30pm in the Arthur Bell Auditorium. Reserve your seats here.

Want the opportunity to update your Western wardrobe? Laurel Taylor from Wilde Ink will be leading a Print Your Own Bandana activity in the Education Center from 12-4pm. Learn the art of block printing and play with custom, handmade stamps to create your own wearable art!

Teen-led Tours will be held at 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm. Meet your guide at the Front Desk.

Taos Public Library joins us to kick off a monthly gallery Storytime collaboration. Your local librarian will read a story related to the art and lead an activity in the Mandelman Ribak gallery beginning at 1:30pm. This series will continue the third Sunday of every month.

We hope to see you at the museum for a day truly devoted to our community, with open doors and fun for the whole family.


This project is supported in part by New Mexico Humanities Council and New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
