Harwood Museum of Art
The Harwood Museum of Art of the University of New Mexico collects, preserves, exhibits and interprets the arts, especially those created in, inspired by, or relevant to northern New Mexico.
The Harwood Museum of Art of the University of New Mexico presents changing exhibitions from locally, nationally, and internationally acclaimed artists.
These include exhibitions from the museum’s rich collection, which features
• Taos Society of Artists
• American Modernists including John Marin and Marsden Hartley
• Taos Moderns including Louis Ribak, Oli Sihvonen, and Lee Mullican
• Hispanic works representing the aesthetic traditions of northern New Mexico
• Contemporary American artists of special note is the octagonal Agnes Martin Gallery, featuring seven paintings by the renowned Abstract Expressionist.
The Harwood is proud of its rich history as an educational and cultural resource for the Taos community, and hosts a wide array of films, lectures and concerts in the Arthur Bell Auditorium. The Harwood Museum of Art strives to include children and families as an important part of its audience. We believe that art should be a part of everyone’s lives and have created a balance of unique, studio arts based programs which serve children and families of the region.
The Harwood education program reaches thousands of children each year through partnerships with the schools, free after school, weekend and summer programs for children, their families, teenagers, and adults.
