Georgia O’Keeffe: New Mexico/New Subjects

Yellow Cliffs

Lisa Messinger, Associate Curator, Department of Modern and Contemporary Art

See the American Southwest through the eyes of painter Georgia O'Keeffe as she first encounters it in 1929, and then immortalizes the relics and landscapes around her New Mexico homes into American icons in the 1930s and '40s.

This event is part of the Met Salon Series.

Engage with Met curators, artists and guests in an informal setting, over coffee and light refreshments. 

This lecture is supported by the Mrs. Joseph H. King Fund.
