Announcing the 2023 “Taos is Art” Lamppost Banner Competition by Town of Taos and Taos Arts Council

In order to highlight Taos as an arts destination; celebrate and support the rich diversity of our community and the abundant creativity of our artists; give visibility to those who may not normally receive representation; and delineate and beautify the historic district. The Town of Taos and the Taos Arts Council are seeking Taos County artists’ art work for a lamppost banner campaign that will be on view within the Town of Taos from approximately late spring through early fall, exact dates to be determined in conjunction with the Town of Taos. It is our goal to feature a diverse and inclusive set of artists currently living and working within Taos County, while welcoming visitors to Taos and the historic district.

Simone Wimett Jaramillo

We all strive to feel grounded in this world, to feel and be loved, to be inspired by those around us. In her art, she is driven to translate details of the human experience as interpreted in her mind into color-driven, vivacious, alluring imagery. Whether Simone's art leads its viewers down a path of simple engagement, intellectual thought, or a session of visual stimulation, she experiences such happiness in sharing her work.

About the Taos Arts Council

What the Arts Council Does

The Taos Arts Council was founded in 2012 with the vision to create a central hub in support of the Arts and Artists Community in Taos, Taos County and Northern New Mexico.

Towards that longstanding goal, the TAC has been actively working towards defining its positioning in relation with the other entities and initiatives currently in Taos — such as the Town of Taos, The Taos Business Consortium, Art Space, Mainstreet, Strong at Heart and similar such government or grassroots organizations.

The stated approach for the Taos Arts Council is to support all constructive dialogue and action between organizations and individuals that is mutually beneficial to all involved.

Activities and Goals Include:

  • Need to Work with Local Government(s)
  • Need for Information Sharing
  • Need for Public Art & Spaces
  • Identifying Cooperative Efforts
  • Coordinated Activities Between Arts Related Organizations
  • Acting as Public Voice for Local Arts Community

“The greatest tool at our command is the very thing that is photography. Light. Light is our paintbrush and it is a most willing tool in the hands of the one who studies it with a sufficient care.”
