Georgia O'Keeffe Museum - Santa Fe, New Mexico

--- Santa Fe, New Mexico, aka "The City Different,"  is the second oldest European settled city in the United States.  Among its many treasures is the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. 
Georgia O'Keeffe, Pelvis with Distance, 1943
"One of the most significant artists of the 20th century, Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986) was devoted to creating imagery that expressed what she called “the wideness and wonder of the world as I live in it.” She was a leading member of the Stieglitz Circle artists, headed by Alfred Stieglitz, America’s first advocate of modern art in America.  These avant-garde artists began to flourish in New York in the 1910s. O’Keeffe’s images—instantly recognizable as her own —include abstractions, large-scale depictions of flowers, leaves, rocks, shells, bones, and other natural forms, New York cityscapes, and paintings of the unusual shapes and colors of architectural and landscape forms of northern New Mexico." (from the museum website)

History on the Move V students will tour the O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, where, in addition to the permanent collections, a special exhibit titled "Shared Intelligence: American Painting and the Photograph" will be on display.

 After our group departs Santa Fe to travel to Colorado, we will drive past O'Keeffe's home/studio known as "Ghost Ranch," in a remote and beautiful area of northern New Mexico.
