The front windows of the old police station on Civic Plaza Drive are transformed into an art destination every month by The Annex Window Series fueled by the Paseo Project. Beginning in September 2020, and rotating every 30 days, Taos artists show their work, solo and as a team, and get paid for it.

Jana Greiner, the curator for The Annex Window Series fueled by the Paseo Project, said the idea “sprung to life from a collaborative project done at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic called ‘Windows on the Future.’ The Paseo Project worked with Vital Spaces in Santa Fe and 516ARTS in Albuquerque to curate and install 60 artworks in 60 windows, 20 in each city for the months of July and August 2020. Inspired by the success of that project we wanted to create a venue in a public location for artists to show their work and get paid to do it, so we reached out to the Town of Taos who offered the front window at the old police station on Civic Plaza Drive. We began hosting installations with a one-month turnover rate in September 2020 and soon lengthened the installs to 2 months. Since then, we have had 10 installations created by individual artists and collaborative art teams.”
