Statement of Purpose:

Georgia O'Keeffe has long been celebrated for her daring innovation, personal vision and compelling artistic style. While she enjoyed considerable success during her lifetime and has been widely collected, until now, few works were to be seen in any single location. The lack of a collection that surveyed her astonishing achievement underscored the need for a museum that could successfully tell the story of the artist and her times.

The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum was founded to inform and inspire both casual visitors and dedicated scholars. As such, it provides a major resource for American and international communities and expands the popular understanding of her unique contribution and remarkable influence on her contemporaries by collecting, preserving, displaying, and interpreting her work.


The main building houses nine exhibition galleries wrapped around an outdoor courtyard in which a monumental O'Keeffe sculpture sits. Six thousand square feet of exhibition space is supplemented by visitor reception, museum shop, and orientation spaces. An eight minute laser disc about Miss O'Keeffe, her life,and runs continuously.


The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum is home to the largest permanent collection of her works. Based on a core collection of over one hundred works, it represents the largest group of the artist's work ever given to a single institution. Among the drawings, paintings, pastels, sculptures, and watercolors, produced between 1905 and 1980 are many important works, some of which the artist kept for her own enjoyment and have seldom been seen. The Museum's collection embraces her range of subjects from iconic flower and desert bone paintings to abstractions, cityscapes, nudes, and still lifes.
