From the first indigenous peoples to modern masters, Taos has had a long and varied history of producing works of art. But the town has not always rested on its history. Taos has a vibrant contemporary art scene as well, with contemporary artists paying homage to their pasts as well as forging new ways of seeing and communicating the present.
