Harwood Museum receives National Accreditation - Harwood Museum of Art
Posted Mar 26, 2017
The American Alliance of Museums (AAM) has awarded accreditation to The Harwood Museum of Art. The AAM's Commission awards accreditation to a museum "for its demonstration of the highest professional standards for education, public service and collections stewardship, and its commitment to continued institutional growth." The award letter itself notes that "through a rigorous process of self-assessment and review by its peers, the museum has shown itself to be a good steward of its resources held in the public trust and committed to a philosophy of continual institutional growth."
The Harwood strives to be a good steward of the artistic and cultural legacy represented by its collections. It is a living legacy of Taos and northern New Mexico, formed by the confluence émigré, Pueblo, and Hispano artists who shaped the overarching narrative of the region's high desert aesthetic. That aesthetic abides in Taos's sublime landscape and local cultures; it provides artistic and cultural continuity to the wide and diverse range of works in the Harwood's collections.
For more information about The Harwood Museum of Art's current direction, please see the essay "The Taos Sublime" that accompanies the current exhibition, CONTINUUM, (October 8, 2016 - May 21, 2017) and serves as a basic text for the Harwood's interpretive plan.
