The Taos Art Museum is located in the former house of Russian artist Nicolai Fechin, his wife Alexandra and daughter Eya. The museum's primary aims are to improve awareness of the works and patronage of Taos artists and to nurture local artistic development. With many of the works of the Taos Society of Artists held by museums outside of New Mexico, they intend to "Bring Taos art back to Taos."
