The Paseo Party on the Plaza

The Paseo Project brings fire and monsters to the heart of historic Taos for a monumental – and free! – community art party.

Motomichi Nakamura, VJ mapping artist from Brooklyn NY, will project his signature monster characters onto the facade of the historic Hotel La Fonda.

Burning Man artist Jamie Vaida will install two custom-crafted fire and sound sculptures that react to audience input.

The Illuminator, an art collective that emerged out of the Occupy Wall Street movement, will enable community members to voice their hopes for Taos from a tiny projection booth. Their visions will shine on adobe walls.

Silent Disco will merge three DJ booths into 500 multi-channel headsets allowing dancers to switch between alternate music genres.

Winners of the youth STEMarts@ThePASEO Monster Challenge will present their images and poetry.

Participatory art experiences from Twirl Discovery Space, UNM Digital Media Department and partner galleries will engage the curious of all ages.
