First Saturday Open House and open hours for Aún Aquí exhibition - July
Couse-Sharp Historic Site invites you to join us for our First Saturday Open House. Tour the historic homes and studios of E. I. Couse and J. H. Sharp, two of the founders of the Taos Society of Artists, and enjoy a delightful stroll through Virginia Couse’s vintage garden.
Docents will be present in every room providing in-depth knowledge of the E. I. Couse home and studio, the Kibbey Couse laboratory and machine shop, the Couse Mobile Machine Shop, the exhibition J. H. Sharp: The Life and Work of an American Legend in the 1915 Sharp Studio, and the exhibition Aún Aquí: Spanish Colonial Contemporary in the 1830s Luna Family Chapel, which Sharp used as his first Taos studio.
In our Lunder Research Center, 138 Kit Carson Road, the exhibition Reflections: Taos Pueblo and the Photography of E. I. Couse will be open 1-5 pm.
Open to the public, free admission; donations encouraged. Free parking available a half block east in the municipal lot on Kit Carson Road; parking for those with disabled permits available on site.
Please note: Because of the site’s nature as a place of historic preservation, most buildings and grounds are not ADA accessible, but The Lunder Research Center is accessible.
