Taos field school of art

DEFINITION

Founded in 1930, its focus was to carry out the vision of the New Mexico Art League of an educational facility in Taos, a museum at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, and acquisitions for the museum. The School, operated by the University of New Mexico, functioned during the summers for eight weeks at the Harwood Foundation, and included classes in sculpture, commercial art, painting and architecture. Instructors included Victor Higgins, Walter Ufer, Kenneth Adams, Ernest Blumenschein, Oscar Berninghaus, Buck Dunton, Joseph Imhoff and Bert Geer Phillips. Initial enrollment was 130 students. Likely its most famous student was Agnes Martin, who studied there in 1947. Sources: Arrell Morgan Gibson, "The Santa Fe and Taos Galleries"; harwoodmuseum.org/gallery4.php?tag=about
