About the Museum: Art patron Millicent Rogers settled in Taos in 1947. A stunning beauty and talented designer in her own right, she was a passionate collector and assembled a distinguished collection of Native American silver and turquoise jewelry and Navajo and Rio Grande weavings. Her collection formed the core of one of America's most important collections of Southwestern arts and design.
Today the Museum's collections have grown to include traditional and contemporary Hispanic religious and domestic arts, pottery, paintings, photography and graphics, and a wide range of arts and crafts from the many cultures of northern New Mexico. On permanent display is a unique collection of pottery by the famed Maria Martinez. The Hispanic collections feature religious sculpture and painting, Spanish Colonial furniture, and textiles. Other permanent exhibitions include Zuni and Hopi Kachina figures, prehistoric and contemporary ceramics from the region, and modern jewelry designs. Changing exhibitions focus on materials, techniques, themes, and issues that reveal the multicultural contexts and histories of northern New Mexico.
The Museum Store features one-of-a-kind arts and crafts - jewelry, ceramics, textiles, woodwork, graphics and photography - by leading artists and craftspeople from the region, products that take their inspiration from the rich permanent collections, and designs that relate to the local landscapes, environments, and cultures. The Museum Store also contains an unusually complete bookstore focusing on the arts, architecture, literature and cultures of the Southwest.
