Client: Denver Art Museum
Dates on view: February 10 – April 28, 2013
Exhibition total area: 6,000 sq. ft.

(Excerpted from the exhibition website) The exhibition brings to light a relatively unknown aspect of Georgia O’Keeffe’s art and thinking—her deep respect for the diverse and distinctive cultures of northern New Mexico. Chronicling her artwork created in the American Southwest, Georgia O’Keeffe in New Mexico: Architecture, Katsinam, and the Land explores O’Keeffe’s paintings of New Mexico’s Hispanic and Native American architecture, cultural objects, and landscapes.

In addition to paintings and drawings by Georgia O’Keeffe and a selection of Hopi kachina dolls that inspired her, works by contemporary American Indian artists from the collection of the Denver Art Museum are on view.

This exhibition was organized by the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Sante Fe, New Mexico.
