Lecture: "Georgia O'Keeffe: Photography and an American Icon" Frist - Free 10-9-09

Lecture: "Georgia O'Keeffe: Photography and an American Icon"

Friday, October 9, Noon
Auditorium, FREE

No artist has been photographed from the beginning to the end of a career as frequently and consistently as Georgia O’Keeffe, whose image was captured by many of America’s most well-known photographers: Ansel Adams, Philippe Halsman, Yosuf Karsh, Arnold Newman, Alfred Stieglitz, Todd Webb, and Andy Warhol to name only a few.

Join Barbara Buhler Lynes, Ph.D., curator at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum and the Emily Fisher Landau Director at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum Research Center, as she explores the significance of the two opposing personas that these photographs constructed of O’Keeffe during her lifetime, and the degree to which the medium of photography played a key role in defining her as one of America’s leading art celebrities.

This lecture is offered in conjunction with one of our newest exhibitions Georgia O'Keeffe and Her Times: American Modernism from the Lane Collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
