Taos is Art Lamppost Banner Competition

Town of Taos partnership with Taos Arts Council

If you live in Taos, or are a regular visitor, you may notice that something looks a bit different downtown from year to year. Since 2018, the Town of Taos and the Taos Arts Council has put out a “Taos is Art” call to our bountiful community of artists to decorate historic downtown Taos with their work. Every year, a select group of Taos artists sees their work transformed into banners to adorn lampposts throughout town. 

This yearly campaign supports the abundant creativity of artists in Taos in a variety of media from painting and photography to sculpture, jewelry and performing arts. It gives visibility to those artists who may not normally receive representation, beautifies the historic district of Taos, and welcomes visitors with a visual expression of what Taos is all about: Taos is art.

Call to Artists

CALL FOR ENTRIES begins January 16 and ends February 3, 2023.
