Free Chautauqua Festival – Georgia O’Keeffe
Performed by Leslie Goddard. Outdoors. Bring lawn seating.
Georgia O’Keeffe was an independent woman who broke the rules and forged her own unique place in the world of the arts. Her style is familiar from the bold, miraculous canvases that gave rise to her legend. Her face is familiar from the astonishing Alfred Stieglitz photographs that captured her wisdom and haunting beauty.
Her innovative impressionist images challenged perceptions and constantly evolved. She not only painted the world around her, she created a world where gigantic brilliant flowers and cow skulls, cavernous valleys and haunting skylines, parched deserts and wide skies, and even the artist herself achieve their undisputed domain.
