From 1918 until the early 1930s, Georgia O’Keeffe made regular visits to the family estate of Alfred Stieglitz at Lake George in upstate New York, where she reveled in the discovery of new subject matter and found respite in the rural setting without the distractions of city life. O’Keeffe’s experiences there inspired one of the most transformative and productive periods of her career, energizing the development of her signature modernist style.

Slow Art Day Discussion

April 12, 2014 - 3:00pm4:00pm

One day each year—April 12 in 2014—people all over the world visit local museums and galleries to look at art slowly. Participants look at five works of art for 10 minutes each and then meet together to talk about their experience. That’s it. Simple by design, the goal is to focus on the art and the art of seeing.

Please join us in the museum café for an unguided group discussion of your Slow Art Day observations.
