Montoso Campground, Wild Rivers, Rio Grande del Norte National Monument

Join us for the 10th annual NeoRio outdoor contemporary art and community event! This year, artists and collaborators delve into Roots ~ Raices, exploring the theme from various angles – botanical, cultural, metaphorical and beyond. Featured artists are Scott Sutton (Portland), Kacie Smith (Albuqerque) and UNM students of the immersive Land Arts of the American West program (Albuquerque). Contributing artists are Martha Shepp (Questa) and Nicholette Codding (Portland).  ~ Meet the artists HERE!~

Discover their unique art installations along the rim of the Rio Grande gorge; explore hands-on, family-friendly activities; take in the afternoon music and poetry salon; and enjoy a delicious, locally-sourced, northern NM fall feast, music, artist talks, evening campfire and more. The combination of contemporary art, wild places and community celebration at NeoRio is a recipe for a fun and exciting event!

This year NeoRio also celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers and Trails Acts. Partnering with the Questa Creative Council, NeoRio is organized by us – LEAP and hosted by the Bureau of Land Management’s Taos Field Office as a Public Lands Day event.

NeoRio this year is made possible by many wonderful volunteers and generous donations and sponsors! This project is supported in part by New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and by the National Endowment for the Arts. Special thanks also to grants from Taos County, Questa Economic Development Fund, Chevron Questa Mine Grants for Good, and sponsorships from PPC Solar and others.
