In a living history interpretation, Colleen Webster portrays the long life of twentieth century artist Georgia O’Keeffe, often hailed as the first truly American painter. Perhaps known best for her large depictions of flowers, O’Keeffe’s career spanned many decades, covered many subjects, and was tightly woven into the photography of her husband Alfred Stieglitz, an icon in the art world in his own right.
A projected show of paintings and photographs helps audiences see the world of this powerful woman who lived into her 100th year. Performance runs about an hour but can be tailored for specific needs. Webster takes questions during and after the presentation, addressed to Miss O’Keeffe. Following that, Webster comes out of character to answer questions addressed to her.
