“The Dance of Life” by Pierre Delattre

This exhibition features a series of colorful narrative paintings that radiate positive energy in contrast to the emotional fallout many have after more than two years of quarantine and isolation. The images of loving couples, animals, communities and nature, all living in a state of harmony, are bright, rhythmic and exude love, optimism and togetherness. The exhibition can be seen on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 2-4 p.m. and runs until May 30.

The tour will be led by Vernon Lujan, Assistant Administrator of Taos Pueblo Tribal Programs, who will provide in-depth insight into the historic battle and the ultimate victory of the Native people in protecting one of their most sacred places. This exhibition ends on April 17. This limited tour is free for Harwood Members and Taos County residents. Admission is $10 for everyone else. For more information, visit harwoodmuseum.org.
