Plan Your Next Conference or Retreat!

Thinking about your next event?


SMU-in-Taos is an amazing resource given to SMU over 50 years ago. It’s so unique that students from other institutions come to SMU-in-Taos to learn and study.

For centuries, the majesty of nature has inspired native peoples, legendary artists, and enlightened leaders. Nowhere is that more true than in New Mexico, where stunning vistas, vast blue skies, and richly colored landscapes intertwine. It is here that groundbreaking artists including Georgia O'Keeffe and Ansel Adams explored the profoundly resonant natural environments that shaped their creative legacies.
