O'Keeffe at MoMA

 

The Museum of Modern Art's new exhibition on Georgia O'Keeffe runs through August 12th, and is the first exhibition to investigate the artist's works on paper made in series. O'Keeffe was a beloved American modernist artist, known for her paintings of enlarged flowers, New York skyscrapers and New Mexico landscapes.

Georgia O'Keeffe: To See Takes Time features more than 120 works created over four decades and is the first time MoMA has featured the Mother of American Modernism's art since 1946. (Fun fact: her original 1946 show was the first time MoMA exhibited a retrospective of a female artist.) Charcoal, watercolor, pastels and graphics on paper take center stage, often side by side with related paintings. Works are presented chronologically, along with a collection of the artist's drawing materials: pastels, watercolors, brushes, graphite sticks and charcoal.

Keeffe's Evening Star, an eight-panel documentation of a sunset in Texas, will be showcased, along with compelling portraits of the artist herself and others.

Timed tickets cost $25 for adults, $18 for 65+ and visitors with a disability, and $14 for students. Kids 16 and under are free.
