Event Description

1929 was a banner year for the northern New Mexico art 
colonies of Santa Fe and Taos. Visitors to the Mabel Dodge Luhan house that summer included Georgia O’Keeffe, John Marin, Rebecca Strand, and Ansel Adams, all of whom were inspired to new heights of creativity by their embrace of the land and cultures of northern New Mexico. This lecture will focus on the synergy among the historical, cultural, and biographical factors that help to explain this extraordinary outburst of creativity. Presented by Lois Rudnick, Ph.D., author of numerous books on Mabel Dodge Luhan and artists in the Southwest.
