The Taos Spring Arts Celebration had its inaugural year in the spring of 1984, the brainchild of Feeny (Anna Rose) Lipscomb. Feeny was the uber-energetic owner of the Historic Taos Inn at the time, envisioning a Taos full of visitors during the typically “Slow Time”, every April. Note: Feeny had zero concept of “starting slowly”, on anything. Her unwavering outlook was “go big or go home”, long before that saying took popular root.

Feeny, along with her superior staff, and bevy of artist friends, created a literal whirlwind of arts-related events for the 1st Taos Spring Arts Celebration. The Taos Inn welcomed famous person after famous person, all month long. The town was alive with warmth and color. Nearly every gallery opened its doors with special openings; the streets were teeming with people from all over the world, almost all of whom had come to our little town due to Feeny’s dauntless marketing abilities.
