Inspirational Women of Northern New Mexico

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 hosted 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.


Like Millicent, there were many remarkable Taos women featured. Learn about these women and how you can experience their impact on Taos at this site by May you find inspiration in their lives and words.
