Kenneth Adams is best remembered as the last and youngest member of the Taos Society of Artists, the last artist to join before it disbanded in l927. Following studies at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Art Students League in New York, and summer classes in Woodstock, Adams moved to New Mexico in 1924. Strongly influenced by Cezanne's Cubist principles, Adams influenced the New Mexico art scene for decades. The subjects of his paintings were largely determined by his compassionate regard for Hispanics and a renewed interest in landscape.

After a dozen years in Taos, Adams moved to Albuquerque in 1938, where he taught at the University of New Mexico for the next 25 years. A testament to his vision and recognition outside the Southwest was his election to the National Academy of Design in New York in 1961.
