What:Local Fund-raising Event
Where: the taos gallery, 133 Bent Street on Wednesday
May 19th from 4:30 PM-7:00 PM
About: Vision Marketing Associates is producing a documentary film about Mabel Dodge, Tony Lujan and how the modernist artists came to be part of the Taos Art Colony. This film, intended for distribution through PBS networks, and for sale through bookstores and NM State Museums, could have major impacts for the town of Taos. We are therefore inviting you to a fundraiser to help see that this project is completed with the cooperation of the Taos Community.

Awakening in Taos is an intimate story about the passionate forces at work within the life of Mabel Dodge Luhan. Luhan was a writer, artist, visionary thinker, philosopher, salon hostess, and creative catalyst for social change. Born before the dawn of the 20th Century, Luhan began life in the Victorian age, and then grew to embody the paradigm of a progressive New Woman in the Modern Era.

Luhan was passionate and vocal about supporting social and environmental issues during the 1910’s, 20’s and 30’s. As a writer and columnist for the Hearst newspapers, she had a national audience for her ideas. The issues that commanded her attention back then, are the same issues that we must confront and understand in our world today: vanishing wilderness, living sustainably, creating an inclusive community, building bridges between races and cultures, finding the balance between modern living, creative expression and spirituality.
