Artist platforms have come a long way, baby. Today, creatives can sell their work on websites like Society6. But a century ago, the six artists who started the Taos Society of Artists in New Mexico didn’t have that option. Instead, they traveled exhibitions around the U.S., showing works reflecting their interest in Hispanic and Pueblo communities. The art colony grew to include 19 members and associate members, whose work influenced artists including Georgia O’Keefe and Maynard Dixon.

See more than 80 of their artworks at Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the Wes's “The Taos Society of Artists” exhibit. It’s free with admission, which is $13 for adults. Visit scottsdalemuseumwest.org.
