Georgia O'Keeffe in New Mexico: Architecture, Katsinam, and the Land

Start Date: 
Sep 27, 2012
End Date: 
Jan 19, 2013

This exhibition, originated by the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, revealed the little-known breadth of Georgia O’Keeffe’s interest in northern New Mexico and more particularly illuminated her keen sensitivity and deep respect for the Native American and Hispano cultures of the region. From 1931 to 1945, O'Keeffe created drawings, watercolors, and paintings of Kachina dolls (or Katsinam), carved representations of Hopi spirit beings. The exhibition included 15 of these depictions, together with actual Kachina dolls and over 30 paintings and works on paper of New Mexico landscapes and architecture.
