The sand-coloured museum is an intimate insight into one of the most prolific American artists Georgia O’Keeffe, with the space dedicated to showcasing her oeuvre and early works contributing to the pivotal Modernist movement at the time. Established in 1997, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum preserves, presents and advances the artistic legacy of O’Keeffe, presenting the largest permanent collection of works in the world, including ongoing educational and research programs.

Built 11 years after O’Keeffe’s passing, the minimalist design is by architect Richard Gluckman and Michigan-based Allegretti Architects. Georgia O’Keeffe remains one of the most significant and intriguing artists of the twentieth century, known internationally for her boldly innovative art in a career spanning over 60 years, and more than a thousand artworks.

O’Keeffe’s renowned watercolours, sculptures, pastels and paintings include subjects as flowers, vibrant and glowing landscapes and skulls, to architectural forms of rocks and trees. Her passionate attraction to nature is seen in prominent works highlighting the hills of Abiquiu or the Cerro Pedernal mountain, which she regularly admired from her Ghost Ranch home and studio in New Mexico. A truly exceptional museum to visit.
