Galleries 9 and 10
Crossing Paths: Beadwork from the Millicent Rogers Museum and the E. Irving Couse Collection
This exhibition focuses on the history of beadwork in northern New Mexico--an art form not typically associated with the Southwest. The diverse community of Taos, New Mexico has acted as a center for cross-cultural interactions and exchange for centuries, if not longer. Before and after the arrival of the Spanish into the region, Taos Pueblo was a significant center for trade between the Pueblo communities to the south and the tribal nations of the Plains to the north.
Please note that this exhibition will be temporarily down during the Fall for Antiques Show and Sale duing October 7, 8 & 9th, 2016
Millicent as Visionary
There are many admirable traits that make up the fascinating persona of Millicent Rogers—model, muse, collector, designer, humanitarian, philanthropist, and VISIONARY. In collaboration with the Taos Visionaries: Art and Culture Consortium, the Millicent Rogers Museum is hosting an exhibition centered on the parallels between Rogers’ life, advocacy, and art collection and the core values of the Millicent Rogers Museum. Although Rogers did not envision a museum when she began collecting Southwestern art, her pieces form the heart of our collection. The Millicent Rogers Museum follows her vision in our support of the arts and cultures of the Southwest and our dedication to collecting and exhibiting these works as a way to continue her legacy.
