Subject Guide: Georgia O'Keeffe and Travel

Past Exhibition: Connecting O'Keeffe

Although she was known for being reclusive, Georgia O’Keeffe was surrounded by interesting people throughout her life. The recollections, letters, and photographs shared in this exhibition provide a fuller, more accurate, albeit more complex, picture of O’Keeffe’s life and work.
