Formed in 1923 by Lucy Harwood and several members of the Taos Society of Artists, the Harwood Museum of Art is the second oldest museum in New Mexico. The museum has been affiliated with the University of New Mexico since 1935, and it now boasts the internationally acclaimed Agnes Martin Gallery, galleries exhibiting highlights from the museum's collection of work by the Taos Society of Artists, Taos Moderns, Hispanic Traditions, and contemporary artists working in Taos, and changing exhibitions fulfilling the Harwood's vision to "Bring Taos Arts to the World and World Arts to Taos."

This is just one couple's opinion, bu we were very disappointed in what the Harwood had to offer, art-wise, this past Sunday. For us, there was an over-abundance of Modern art displays and not nearly enough of everything else. If you're looking for wonderful New...More

Taos has so many museums and galleries, but this one shouldn't be missed. Larger than it looks from the outside, the Harwood can be enjoyed in an hour or for the whole day!

Agnes Martin is one of my favorite artist. Have followed her for years - just saw a major retrospective in NY on her. The "chapel" here of her work, that she designed, is so deeply spiritual and moving. A "must see." It takes me out...More

Lovely moderately sized museum part of University of New Mexico. Just off the main drag. Easy parking. Interesting collections... most of which focus on local culture and Taos personalities. Very nice respite from the hustle bustle of downtown Taos.
