The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, opened in July 1997, is dedicated to the artistic legacy of Georgia O’Keeffe and to the study and interpretation of American Modernism. It is the only museum in the world dedicated to an internationally known American woman artist, and is responsible for the stewardship of more than 50% of Georgia O’Keeffe’s total lifetime output, establishing it as the single most important and comprehensive repository of O’Keeffe’s work. The Museum’s collection includes over 3,000 art-works, along with photographs, archival materials and O’Keeffe’s houses in Abiquiu and Ghost Ranch. These resources enable the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum to do what no other museum in the world can: bring the artist to life with a completeness possible nowhere else, while providing context to her place within American art history. The Museum safeguards for the future more than just artworks and archival materials, but an enormously important part of America’s artistic heritage.
