About Leslie Goddard: Georgia O'Keeffe

Leslie Goddard: Georgia O'Keeffe

Music Icon

In this living-history performance, historian Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., portrays Georgia O’Keeffe, the legendary artist and modernist. As O’Keeffe reflects on her life, she discusses her intense closeness to flowers, nature, and the landscape around her homes in New Mexico. What emerges is a complex person whose mythmaking encompassed both her art and her life. Trained as a historian, Leslie Goddard earned a Ph.D. from Northwestern University specializing in U.S. history, cultural history and women’s studies. She also holds both a master's and a bachelor's degree in theater and has worked in the field of museum education for more than ten years. Her programs combine this teaching and performing experience with her background as a researcher and historian.
