Regional, Renowned Artists
A handsome Pueblo Revival adobe with a peaceful garden and courtyard showcases small, rotating exhibits from an impressive 20,000-piece permanent collection. It includes well-known artists like Georgia O'Keeffe, Gustave Baumann, members of the Taos Society of Artists (Ernest L. Blumenschein, Bert G. Phillips, Joseph H. Sharp) and noted 20th-century Southwest photographers like Ansel Adams. Don't miss the special exhibits or the free Friday evenings (5-8 p.m.). The adjoining gift shop is a great place to pick up books, postcards, and jewelry.
