The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum was opened in 1997 about 11 years after the artists Georgia O'Keeffe had passed away. The museum offers insight into her paintings as well as the creative process and the landscapes that were her inspirations. The Museum also helps to maintain the two homes and studios that she kept.
Georgia O'Keeffe is considered one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. She loved creating what she called "the wideness and wonder of the world as I live in it." Her images included abstractions, large-scale flower depictions, leaves, rocks, shells, bones, and other natural items.
The educational programs at the museum serve more than 7,100 students and adults and have quite a variety of workshops, lectures, conversations, and classroom activities.
