"The Millicent Rogers Board of Directors and staff feel is best to close the Museum at least through March 31, 2020, of course this date is subject to change.
In the meantime, we will be working to bring you enhanced online experiences; please check back with Facebook and our website soon. We will notify you of online posts.
We'll miss seeing you! If you have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. Executivedirector@millicentrogers.org
Thank you, Greta Brunschwyler, Executive Director"
"The MRM online store is Open for Business and we are going to post all of our items post online. This will take some time because the store contains so many unique vintage jewelry consignment pieces and each must be photographed and posted separately.
We just spoke with Cavin Gonzales, Maria Martinez's grandson. Maria is arguably the most famous Native American potter who created the elegant black-on-black pottery.) The San Ildefonso Pueblo is closed, so his family will not be able to make a living, as per usual, through pottery sales to visitors. We are honored that Cavin is going to bring the Millicent Rogers pottery that his family has created, so that we can make it available online.
Dear Millicent Rogers Museum Friends,
Thank you for your support of the MRM. The health and safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff is our top priority. As the MRM continues to monitor the coronavirus status, we are taking preemptive precautions to prevent the spread of germs within the museum environment, including having hand sanitizer and disposable gloves available.
Additionally, the MRM is canceling public event gatherings in accordance with the New Mexico State Governor’s request for curtailing gatherings and the CDC’s guidelines for social distancing. The MRM remains open to the public: Tuesday-Sundays 10am-5pm in March. And seven days a week 10am-5pm, beginning April.
Following is a list of currently cancelled programs and events:
Friday, March 13, 14 & 15: Taos Pueblo Artists Winter Showcase
Friday, March 20: Michael Naranjo Exhibition reception
