To Honor Millicent Rogers
Gallery 15: Contracting rheumatic fever as a child, Millicent Rogers would go on to have lifelong health complications. Despite her frail health, she had three children, traveled extensively, and was an avid collector and designer. She moved to Taos in 1947 after a painful breakup with Clark Gable and instantly fell in love with the surrounding landscape, art, and culture. During her time in the Southwest, Rogers became a major patron of Native American art and amassed a large collection of paintings, textiles, baskets, pottery, jewelry, and more. Having gained an appreciation for the arts of the region, her youngest son Paul Peralta-Ramos saved her collection of Southwest art from the auction block after her death in 1953. Inspired by his mother's vision, Peralta-Ramos opened a museum in her beloved Taos in her honor three years later that continues to share and celebrate the arts and cultures of the Southwest. To Honor Millicent, a special exhibit dedicated to our namesake, features examples of jewelry designed by Millicent herself and collected from Native American artists in the Southwest as well as artifacts from the life of the legendary fashion icon, mother, artist, philanthropist, and collector.
