Granddaughter of one of the Standard Oil Company founders, Millicent Rogers was a world traveler, art collector and cultural connoisseur who spent the last years of her short life in Taos.
The Millicent Rogers Museum was founded in 1956 as a memorial to this creative spirit and to showcase the southwestern artistic wonders that had so fascinated and captivated her. Current holdings number well over 7,000 pieces, and include pottery, clothing, jewelry, baskets, beadwork, textiles and weavings, and various personal items of famed San Ildefonso Pueblo potter, Maria Martinez.
