“It’s a dream. . .But I think we can do it. I have a lot of unfinished business.”—Georgia O’Keeffe

New director, Cody Hartley, dreams big for our future:

“We have a vision of the O’Keeffe as a beloved institution, creating deeply meaningful and authentic experiences. Strengthened by the communities and cultures of northern New Mexico, shaped by the creative landscape of the region-- we will be innovative and ambitious in building a future fully worthy of Georgia O’Keeffe’s legacy.”

“When I think of my childhood, I think of it as very pleasant.” —Georgia O’Keeffe

How did our new director first get interested in art?

His mom and grandparents were painters, and young Cody decided to pursue art history so he could talk to them about their favorite subject.

It’s #cody_week! Like Georgia O’Keeffe, our new director Cody is an avid outdoorsman. He’s known to take his F150 off into the wilderness to get off the grid. On snowy days, you can probably find him skiing on at Kachina Peak, in Taos. The rest of the year, you can find him daydreaming about said ski slopes. ⠀

Six more months to go, Cody!⠀

Frida Kahlo's Garden is Still Thriving - Six Decades after her Death

Today, 80 years later, Kahlo’s home and gardens remain open as a museum. The bougainvillea still stand tall, too, their thorny vines winding around the paths and flower beds that Kahlo traversed during her life. The painter spent countless hours in her garden, a source of respite and artistic inspiration.

Alexander Girard: A Designer's Universe exhibition is now open at the Museum of International Folk Art!
The limited edition pillow in this photo is a reproduction of Girard's 1972 International Love Heart design, and is currently on view in the O'Keeffe Museum's gallery.
One of the leading figures in American design in the Postwar era, Alexander Girard became director of design for the textile division of Herman Miller in 1952. Girard gave Georgia O'Keeffe a pillow with a similar design as a token of their friendship.

Make sure you go and see this great exhibition at MOIFA, May 5 - October 27, 2019!

Oliver Sacks: The Healing Power of Gardens

"All of us have had the experience of wandering through a lush garden or a timeless desert, walking by a river or an ocean, or climbing a mountain and finding ourselves simultaneously calmed and reinvigorated, engaged in mind, refreshed in body and spirit."

Georgia O'Keeffe also found peace in her garden.

What about you? What do gardens make you feel?

"At the O’Keeffe, glasses show ‘all kinds of colors in this sucker’" - from our friends at the Albuquerque Journal.

"On Friday, a handful of local men with red-green deficiencies, ranging in age from 18 to 80 — including 28-year-old Olguin and 26-year-old Garcia — were invited to [the O'Keeffe Museum to be the first to] try the EnChroma color blind glasses.Colorblindness is most common with men, affecting about 8 percent of males.

“It’s nice to see things like everybody else does,” Redd said. “In the way Georgia O’Keeffe wanted me to see it.”

We are so thankful to all the men who volunteered to participate.in this great event.

Want to try the glasses for yourself? Come on by the Museum, where several pairs are now available for check out at front desk!

Opening June 7, 2019 at the O'Keeffe, Contemporary Voices: Ken Price.⁣

As part of its ongoing Contemporary Voices series, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum presents work by Ken Price (1935-2012). One of the foremost American sculptors of his day, Price was also an accomplished graphic artist. Ten ceramic sculptures by Price, a longtime resident of Taos, New Mexico, will be displayed on pedestals throughout the Museum’s galleries.

The organic, sensual forms, and chromatic complexity of Price’s sculptures will be paired and juxtaposed with O’Keeffe’s still life and landscape subjects, inviting visitors to view both artists in a new light. Watercolors by Georgia O’Keeffe will be presented alongside kindred works on paper, an homage to the high desert, by Ken Price. ⁣

In a portrait taken in 1940, Frida Kahlo leans casually on a stone sculpture surrounded by lush greenery. She wears a crown of deep-pink bougainvillea blossoms—just one of countless plants that filled her abundant garden at Casa Azul, the painter’s longtime home.

Today, 80 years later, Kahlo’s home and gardens remain open as a museum. The bougainvillea still stand tall, too, their thorny vines winding around the paths and flower beds that Kahlo traversed during her life. The painter spent countless hours in her garden, a source of respite and artistic inspiration.

"Everyone has many associations with a flower - the idea of flowers. ⁣

You put out your hand and touch the flower - you lean forward to smell it - maybe touch it with your lips almost without thinking - or give it someone to please them. ⁣

Still - in a way - nobody sees a flower -really - it is so small...⁣

So I said to myself - I'll paint what I see - what the flower is to me, but I'll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it...⁣

I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see in flowers." - Georiga O'Keeffe⁣

Miles north of the Grand Canyon lies the lesser-known yet equally brilliant naturally-formed Glen Canyon. Carved by the Colorado River, the destination located in southern Utah has inspired artists and writers for centuries. As road-trip season returns, the New Mexico Museum of Art is taking a trip through the canyon and Lake Powell with their exhibition, “The Great Unknown: Artists at Glen Canyon and Lake Powell.”

If you head to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, you’re bound to do and learn about more than just the fascinating life and art of Georgia O'Keeffe. You might find yourself signing up for an evening drawing class where you learn her techniques, or while eating breakfast learn about how the mind perceives light or if you're color-blind find yourself able to see O'Keeffe's paintings just as she would have hoped. From First Friday Art Activity (free to locals with a NM ID along with admission to the museum), to geological field trips, the museum offers plenty for everyone.

It's your last chance to check out the Georgia O'Keeffe: The Candid Camera!

From an early date, Georgia O’Keeffe’s reputation as an artist was tied to her image; a public persona that would be crafted principally through photography. Central to this was her relationship, beginning in 1917, with Alfred Stieglitz, who would photograph O’Keeffe more than three hundred times over the course of twenty years.

Indeed, O’Keeffe’s self-presentation-her taste for starkly contrasting black-and-white clothes and ease in front of the camera-can be ascribed in part to her experience as Alfred Stieglitz’s model. But Stieglitz, who married O’Keeffe in 1924, was not the only photographer who made her a frequent subject.

As O’Keeffe began spending more time out west, she was joined at home and in her travels by photographer friends, including Ansel Adams and Todd Webb. This selection of photographs from the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum’s collection capture their subject in more candid moments, in contrast to the familiar and clearly posed character of so many images of the artist.

Each season in northern New Mexico seems to have its own personality. Georgia O'Keeffe captured the ebb and flow of seasons in a way that perfectly expressed their individuality. ⁣

Spring is a bit moody, icy and blustery one day, then sweet and breezy the next! All we can predict is that the season is unpredictable! ⁣

Alfred Stieglitz’s Sensual Photographs of Georgia O’Keeffe Reveal Her Vulnerability - from Artsy

In the winter of 1921, Alfred Stieglitz mounted his erotic pictures of O’Keeffe at New York’s Anderson Galleries, with her bare breasts, thin torso, and expressive hands on view.

“Photographs marked by such intimacy had never been seen in public. They seemed to tell a story tracing the growth of the couple’s affection,” writes Carolyn Burke in her new book, Foursome (2019),which traces the complex relationships between Stieglitz and O’Keeffe, as well as artist couple Rebecca Salsbury and Paul Strand.
