When Georgia Was Here
This rolling exhibition will display near PPHM's own Georgia O'Keeffe painting, "Red Landscape", works of art produced contemporaneous with O'Keeffe's time at WTSNC (now West Texas A&M University) from fall 1916 to February 1918 when she took a leave of absence due to illness, and eventually resigned. The exhibition will be drawn from the PPHM's own stellar art collection and from public and private collections nationwide. When "Georgia Was Here" will present a new perspective on American art produced between 1916 and 1918.
