Taos art colony

The Taos Art Colony is an art colony which began in 1898 with the visit of Bert G. Phillips and Ernest L. Blumenschein to Taos, New Mexico.

An article with drawings by Blumenschein about a ceremony at Taos Pueblo appeared in the July 10, 1898 issue of Harper's Weekly. Within a few years other artists joined them in Taos: Joseph H. Sharp, W. Herbert Dunton, E. Irving Couse, and Oscar E. Berninghaus. These 6 artists were the charter members of the Taos Society of Artists.

Taos is an artistic center and has many art galleries and museums.
