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.
