If the warmer weather and the obligatory (by now) jab have you headed outdoors to get a much-needed breather from lockdown, after lockdown you've surely noticed that the town of Taos' fabulous Lamp Post project is in full swing, with art banners celebrating our living art colony all over town. As if that weren't enough of a lift for weary spirits, the events planned for the week ahead are sure to leave you inspired, along with a renewed sense of relative normalcy.
