Agnes Martin at the Harwood Museum of Art
The Harwood Museum of Art in Taos, New Mexico has a long and important connection with the career of internationally renowned artist Agnes Martin.
In 1946, after a five-year focus on teaching, Martin enrolled in the University of New Mexico, studying art. She spent the summer of 1947 enrolled in the UNM Field School in Taos, and lived sporadically in Taos between 1953 and 1957. Martin returned to New Mexico in 1968 and to Taos in 1993, where she lived until her death in December 2004. The Harwood's Agnes Martin Gallery, an octagonal space exhibiting seven paintings donated by the artist, was inaugurated in 1993.
