Family Day: Gifts from Georgia’s Garden

  • Sunday, July 14
  • 10:30 AM - 2:30 PM MT

Join us to celebrate the book 'Gifts from Georgia’s Garden: How Georgia O’Keeffe Nourished Her Art' written by Lisa Robinson and illustrated by Hadley Hooper.

Join us for a special Family Day event in honor of Gifts from Georgia’s Garden: How Georgia O’Keeffe Nourished Her Art written by Lisa Robinson and illustrated by Hadley Hooper. The brand-new release takes readers behind the scenes of Georgia O’Keeffe’s life in New Mexico, where her garden played a pivotal role in the artist’s work and lifestyle. The book explores how plants enriched the soil, how her home-grown feasts fed her friends, and how it inspired the artist’s creativity. The book also addresses the era’s prejudice against female artists and how O’Keeffe was able to live and thrive in her verdant sanctuary, surrounded by her garden, well into old age.
