The PASEO: Taos Delights in Free Art From 70 Artists

Streets of Taos were the canvas for “unhangable art,” Sept. 25-26

By Janet Webb, September 27, 2015

Thank you to all the artists who helped create a truly magical experience for thousands of locals and visitors on Friday and Saturday, September 25 and 26 during the second-ever The PASEO outdoor art festival, part of the 41st annual Taos Fall Arts Festival.

I tried (but failed) to see every one of the 30 art installations. Here are some iPhone pictures of the artists I was able to meet, with a few from other people. Please forward your images of the PASEO artists I missed (see the list way below) and I will post alongside of mine. — JW
