Fifteen years ago the Taos Art Museum at Fechin House first opened its doors to the public. It has since become an integral part of the Taos art scene—a champion of local artists, an advocate for our architectural heritage, and the guardian of the legacy of renowned Russian artist Nicolai Fechin.
As they look forward to what the next 15 years holds for the museum, they ask that you partner with us to assist in building their endowment. The museum is a vital part of our community.
Over the past 15 years, the Museum has experienced record-breaking growth. Their nationally recognized exhibitions are reaching visitors from all 50 states and 21 countries. Popular educational programs and events are consistently sold-out as they engage individual visitors, families, and children in personal, in-depth art experiences and the heritage of both Nicolai Fechin and the Taos Society of Artists.
