History is Facinating

March 3 at 2 p.m.

Mabel Dodge Luhan in Taos

It is 1935. You are invited to celebrate the Intimate Memories of Mabel Dodge Luhan (1879-1962). She shares her mystical visions, intimate passions, and falling in love with New Mexico and Tony Lujan in Edge of Taos Desert. Mabel’s life story rouses curiosity about political and avant-garde art movements during the first half of the 20th century. Mabel's many guests became inspired by the southwest landscape and culture:Mary Austin, D. H. Lawrence, Andrew Dasburg, Willa Cather, Ansel Adams, Robinson Jeffers, Jean Toomer and Georgia O'Keeffe.
