Georgia O’Keeffe: Visions of Hawai’i
New York Botanical Gardens
Saturday, August 25, 2018
$159.00
Discover the artist’s little-known depictions of the Hawaiian Islands—and the plants and landscapes that inspired them.
Pioneering American modernist Georgia O’Keeffe (1887–1986) conveyed a distinct sense of place with innovative depictions of her surroundings, from stark New Mexican landscapes to New York cityscapes. Yet flowers and plants were subjects that engaged O’Keeffe throughout her career. Curated by Theresa Papanikolas, Ph.D., of the Honolulu Museum of Art, this landmark exhibition will offer a rare focus on 20 of O’Keeffe’s depictions of Hawai‘i from a nine-week sojourn in 1939 commissioned by the Hawaiian Pineapple Company to create artwork for an advertising campaign.
Please join us for this amazing exhibit with a guided tour and lunch.
