The Taos Plaza Will Remain Welcoming Amidst a Period of Construction

  • Local Champion: Town of Taos
  • Date Funded: June 30, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $10,000

The Taos Plaza is in many ways the beating heart of the community, bringing locals, visitors, merchants, and shoppers together at the center of town. But it’s currently amidst a three-year renovation period with construction that has impacted businesses and foot traffic, making the space feel unwelcoming and off-limits. To address the issue, the Town of Taos hoped to launch a public art project to make the construction site less forbidding. With support from the LOR Foundation, local artists will paint murals to cover construction fences, and the town will create signage to help with way-finding, to encourage local shopping, and to let visitors know the plaza is still open despite the period of construction.

This project was fiscally sponsored by Downtown Taos
