During her lifetime, Georgia O’Keeffe created more than 2,000 pieces of artwork in oil, watercolor, pastel, and a range of other media. Now, thanks to funding from the Carl & Marilynn Thoma Foundation, this entire body of work can be explored using a new interactive chart on the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum’s website. Join Liz Neely, Curator of Digital Experience at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, to learn more about how data visualization helps us see an artist’s work through a new lens and how other prototypes are supporting the development of Georgia O’Keeffe’s digital catalogue raisonné.

A valuable resource for researchers, students, and O’Keeffe enthusiasts at large, this innovative data visualization tool comes from months of audience research and numerous prototypes, all of which help to bring 21st-century research practices to the field of art history.

This event is free to attend. Please register in advance. For assistance with event registration, email contact@gokm.org or call 505-496-1000. Can’t make the talk? This program will be recorded and posted on our website and YouTube Channel.
