La Familia; Legendary Families and the Legacy of MRM
(Galleries 9 & 10, 12 & 14)
March 18 – June 25, 2017
In the 1960s, Claude and Elizabeth Anderson gave their charming adobe home to the Millicent Rogers Museum. It was converted into a museum, but still retains the intimate feel of the original home. Throughout the museum, you can view images of how the galleries were originally decorated by the Andersons and Millicent Rogers herself carved her initials into what was once the main entrance to the home. This Saturday, the museum will open a new exhibit, La Familia: Legendary Families and the Legacy of the Millicent Rogers Museum, about the vast network of family connections significant to our past, present, and future. Works donated to the museum's permanent collection by the Andersons will be on view, which includes some of the items in this photograph.
There are many admirable traits that make up the fascinating persona of Millicent Rogers—model, muse, collector, designer, humanitarian, philanthropist, and VISIONARY. In collaboration with the Taos Visionaries: Art and Culture Consortium, the Millicent Rogers Museum is hosting an exhibition centered on the parallels between Rogers’ life, advocacy, and art collection and the core values of the Millicent Rogers Museum. Although Rogersdid not envision a museum when she began collecting Southwestern art, her pieces form the heart of our collection. The Millicent Rogers Museum follows her vision in our support of the arts and cultures of the Southwest and our dedication to collecting and exhibiting these works as a way to continue her legacy.
