Visit the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum Art & Leadership End-of-Summer Art Exhibition and enjoy First Friday activities!

The Art & Leadership Exhibition celebrates the work created by young artists throughout the summer. Art & Leadership is the Museum’s educational program that promotes the development of self-confidence, self-esteem, leadership skills, and self-expression in middle school students.

After checking out the exhibition, create your own O’Keeffe-inspired sculpture with Tumbleroot Pottery Pub at the Museum. One-pound blocks of air-dry clay will be available for the first 75 First Friday visitors to create their own masterpiece. Spotlight tours of O’Keeffe’s pottery-making tools and sculpture casts on display in the exhibition Georgia O’Keeffe: Making a Life will also be free for First Friday visitors.
