ABOUT TAOS FALL ARTS

The Taos Fall Arts Festival began in 1974 as a venue staged at the homes of patrons who wanted to promote local art. Over the years the festival grew in popularity, and the venues have changed, but the mission has remained constant: to celebrate the visual arts and artists of Taos County; to encourage the growth of emerging artists; and to continue hosting an event where artists could come together, exhibit, and market their work for the delight and appreciation of the community.

LOCATION

The exhibition and events will take place at UNM-Taos Bataan Hall on Civic Plaza Drive from Sept. 23rd through Oct. 2nd.
