The Research Center brings together people to investigate, advance, and present new concepts and research on Georgia O’Keeffe, American Modernism, and Museum Studies.
New ideas and research are explored and promoted through the Research Center’s academic and museum studies fellowships, library and archives, and numerous programs and activities – such as conversations, symposia, and a triennial Book Prize.
The Research Center cultivates unique collections to further research on Georgia O’Keeffe, American Modernism, and related regional histories to place and view the entire context of O’Keeffe’s life and work through a variety of methods, including:
- caring for the libraries, archives, letters, and photographs that belonged to O’Keeffe
- interviewing people who personally knew Georgia O’Keeffe to capture stories and reminiscences
- housing the painting tools and found objects depicted in her paintings.
- The resources and collections housed in the Research Center are open and accessible for visitors to utilize online or in person.
