Journey to New Mexico - Follow Mabel's Path to Taos

Globe Newswire

TAOS, N.M., Oct. 26, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- There is something powerful in the light of Northern New Mexico. For generations, artists and soul searchers have been drawn to the remote mountains around Taos to discover and create art. Interest in escaping turbulent society and a desire to build a retreat in which artists could create, is what brought Mabel Dodge Luhan to Taos, New Mexico in 1917. After settling in Taos, Mabel began attracting artists and philosophers to her New Mexican home. But, it was the magical light and the unique culture that kept them here and claimed the creative souls of artists like Georgia O'Keeffe and Ansel Adams, and the imaginations of the likes of D.H. Lawrence, Frank Waters, and Willa Cather. The Harwood Museum of Art's exhibition, Mabel Dodge Luhan & Company: American Moderns and the West, opening in May of 2016, explores the life of Mabel Dodge Luhan and her journey to Taos through the art of the people she attracted to this remote area.
