The Paseo Project
The PASEO Project’s mission is to transform art through community and community through art. The Paseo Project provides an opportunity for artists to envision, develop, and execute their work with the community of Taos, New Mexico. The P.P.A.I.R. (Paseo Project Artist in Residence) Program provides a project-based residency set within a rural environment steeped in history, art, and culture. Taos is a centuries-old Art Colony and home to Taos Pueblo, UNESCO protected and the oldest continually inhabited community in North America. Home to artists for centuries, The Paseo Project holds to the tradition of bringing artists from around the world to both inspire and be inspired. The P.P.A.I.R residency consists of use of a studio/office space, accommodations, and a stipend. This program brings emerging and established artists from a diversity of practices for a 3 week residency in Taos.
Artists are asked to share, present, or install their work at the culmination of their stay or during their annual PASEO event in the fall.
Work space is dependent upon artists needs. Office space, studio space, and meeting rooms are available.
Artists have their own one bedroom guesthouse. A car is necessary as public transportation is limited.
Artists provide all necessary technical equipment they need to comfortably carry out their work. Paseo Project will assist in introducing artist to local collaborators, educators etc.
