Mabel Dodge Luhan & Company: American Moderns and The West focuses on the life and times of one of the early 20th century's most significant cultural figures: Mabel Dodge Luhan (1879-1962). Luhan brought modern art to Taos, New Mexico, putting Taos on the national and international map of the avant-garde and creating a “Paris West” in the American Southwest. From 1918-1947, Luhan influenced legions of European and American “movers and shakers” to find Northern New Mexico's physical and cultural landscapes—new aesthetic, social, and cultural perspectives on modern life.

This is an opportunity to see works by Paul Strand, Ansel Adams, Marsden Harley and John Marin as well as pieces by accomplished, but lesser known artists, including Rebecca “Beck” Salsbury James, Dorothy Brett, Agnes Pelton, and Pueblo artist Awa Tsireh.
