🌻 About Taos Spring Arts 

The Taos Spring Arts is an annual event showcasing the best of Taos’ creativity through a dynamic two week-long celebration. The festival features an array of exhibitions, art shows, art walks, projections, poetry readings, performance art, film screenings, and live music performances. It’s an invitation to experience the rich tapestry of culture that makes Taos a unique artistic hub.

🌻 History of Inspiration

Inaugurated in the spring of 1984 by Feeny (Anna Rose) Lipscomb, the visionary owner of the Historic Taos Inn at the time, the festival was born out of a desire to invigorate Taos with visitors during the typically quieter month of April. Feeny’s philosophy of “go big or go home” transformed the town into a bustling center of arts and culture, attracting visitors from around the globe with its diverse and engaging programming. Feeny’s legacy lives on as we continue to 

celebrate and expand upon her original vision, making each festival a testament to her indomitable spirit and love for the arts.

🌻 This Year’s Celebration

This year, the Taos Spring Arts Festival aims to surpass all expectations, honoring its storied past while looking forward to an even brighter future. Participants can look forward to a curated selection of events designed to showcase the incredible talent within our community and to foster connections among artists, residents, and visitors alike.
