The museum dedicated to the work of artist Georgia O'Keefe
opened in 1997, eleven years after the death of the artist who
loved the state of New Mexico so much. Since then the museum has
welcomed more than 1.3 million visitors, who come to enjoy the
exhibition of the works of one of the most important artists of the
20th century. Georgia O'Keefe created imagery that expressed
'wideness and wonder', and was a leading member of one of the
avant-garde art movements in New York in the 1920s. She featured
the high deserts and dramatic cliffs of New Mexico frequently in
her work. The Santa Fe museum's permanent collection contains more
than 130 O'Keefe paintings, drawings and sculptures, the largest
concentration of her work in the world and it is the only museum in
the United States dedicated solely to one woman's work. The gallery
itself is a former Baptist church with adobe walls.
