Fodor's Expert Review Georgia O'Keeffe Museum
One of many East Coast artists who visited New Mexico in the first half of the 20th century, O'Keeffe returned to live and paint here, eventually emerging as the demigoddess of Southwestern art. O'Keeffe's innovative view of the landscape is captured in From the Plains, inspired by her memory of the Texas plains, and Jimson Weed, a study of one of her favorite plants. Special exhibitions with O'Keeffe's modernist peers are on view throughout the year—many of these are exceptional, sometimes even more interesting than the permanent collection, which numbers some 3,000 works. The museum is also your point of contact for booking guided tours of O'Keeffe's historic home and studio an hour north in Abiquiú.
