Thank you for your note! Actually the Fechin House houses the Taos Art Museum, located at 227 Paseo Del Pueblo Norte. The Harwood Museum of Art is an entirely separate museum, located at 238 Ledoux Street (near Taos Plaza). Both great museums, but definitely separate!

“Excellent Overview of Taos Artists”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Harwood is a small gem of a museum. My favorite is the room dedicated to the work of Agnes Martin, where you can sit in the middle of a rounded room and soak up her giant canvases. A great selection of Taos artists, from older to more modern, and the museum also hosts events like readings and lectures. A must.

“Worst "art" I've ever seen”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Features modern art, some of which looked like someone cleaning his/her brush on a piece of canvas and then trying to pass it off as "art." There are perhaps half a dozen pieces in this museum that I would classify as "art" -- most of the rest could have been done by a 6-year-old.

“Outstanding Southwest Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

We went to the Harwood last week primarily to view the exhibit of Woody Crumbo's works. The museum and the various collections on display were really outstanding. The Crumbo exhibit is being shown through September 8, 2013.

“Neat museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

We took a visit to this museum after hearing about it from the folks of the RC Gorman Gallery. We specifically went to see the Gorman display, but were surprised by the art of the other artists as well. Definitely worth the trip.
