Georgia O’Keeffe in New Mexico: Architecture, Katsinam, and
September 28, 2012 – January 20, 2013
This exhibition, originated by the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, will reveal the little-known breadth of Georgia O’Keeffe’s interest in northern New Mexico and will more particularly illuminate her keen sensitivity and deep respect for the Native American and Hispano cultures of the region. From 1931 to 1945, O'Keeffe created numerous drawings, watercolors, and paintings of Kachina dolls (or Katsinam), carved representations of Hopi spirit beings. The exhibition will include 15 of these depictions, together with actual Kachina dolls and over 30 paintings and works on paper of New Mexico landscapes and architecture. MAM is open Tuesday - Sunday.
