Art Gallery Alcove
Between 1916 and 1918, Georgia O’Keeffe wrote close to 200 letters
documenting her collected experiences while living in Canyon and
teaching at West Texas Normal College. Drawing from these letters and
borrowing from the classical traditions of the curiosity cabinet,
symbolic objects from the museum’s permanent collection have been chosen
to represent the ways in which O’Keeffe was trying to make sense of the
vastness, the weather, the speed, and the freedom she found here.
