Couse-Sharp Historic Site


La Luz de Taos 2024 opens April 12 in the Lunder Research Center on the downtown Taos campus of the Couse-Sharp Historic Site. It features 60 works by exciting contemporary artists in a variety of media. LaLuzdeTaos.org goes live the same day.

The LRC focuses on the Taos Society of Artists (TSA); E. I. Couse and J. H. Sharp were two of the founding members in 1915. “The TSA left a profound artistic and social legacy,” said Davison Packard Koenig, executive director and curator. “Their shared vision, of creating a uniquely American art, permanently influenced not only the world of art but also prevailing perceptions of Native America and the American West. The artists in La Luz de Taos represent a breadth of backgrounds, presenting a contemporary vision of our region, its people, and the nuanced history and traditions imbued in the landscape.”
