The Trusteeship

Special Access – Georgia O’Keeffe Exhibit, April 2012

At the beautiful, Renaissance-style Jonathan Club in downtown Los Angeles, Trusteeship members spent a very special evening learning more about Georgia O’Keeffe. Barbara Buhler Lynes, a member of the IWF in Santa Fe and curator of the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum and the Emily Fisher Landau Director of the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum Research Center, spoke to the group particularly about the artist’s homes. “She had a profound appreciation for the natural world, which can easily be seen through her choices in where to reside,” said Barbara. Moving from New York in 1929, O’Keeffe settled in New Mexico where her two homes were set in open land and decorated in minimalist style so as not to distract from the gorgeous surroundings. Barbara’s enthusiasm for and love of her topic was contagious-everyone left wanting to know even more about the amazing artist.
