To some it may seem inexplicable why Taos--a tiny town nestled in New Mexico’s high mountain desert--became the vortex for an American art movement of such national and international significance over the course of a century.  But to Davison Koenig, the Couse-Sharp Historic Site executive director and curator, it’s perfectly understandable. more

Paul O'Connor's photography book "Taos Portraits" (2012), chronicles 25 years in Taos through his camera lens. As he photographed the artists who lived and worked here through that quarter century, he captured the very spirit of Taos itself, in all its maverick, outlaw glory. The bohemian, freewheeling lifestyles of these artists was even more apparent in the stories that accompanied the portraits. Many of them told by family and friends. more
