Centuries of a vibrant art culture began here in the hands of the Red Willow People and was introduced to the world when two European artists (Bert G. Phillips and Ernest L. Blumenschein) stayed in Taos to repair a broken wagon wheel. News of the rich culture, enchanting light and sacred mountain quickly spread. Patrons of the arts like Mabel Dodge Lujan and Millicent Rogers, made Taos a hub for influential creatives. Opening the door for the Taos moderns and all who came after. Taos’ influence on art spans the world over and the art community thrives here to this day. Maybe it’s the colors, the light, the stark transition from dessert to endless blue sky. Maybe it’s the mountain.
