Event Description

Georgia O’Keeffe developed a distinctive way of combining concepts she learned as an art student into a recognizable language of forms. One of her gifts, and a sign of her greatness, is that her bones, flowers, trees, skyscrapers, clouds, and other forms offer new ways to think and talk about art, beyond the narrower frames of realism or abstraction. Another gift is that these forms resonate with universal meanings. Lecture by Jan Castro, independent curator and art historian, author of The Art & Life of Georgia O’Keeffe (Crown and Virago, 1985).
