The serape will go on view along with other Native American textiles and works of art in May as part of the de Young's exhibition, Lines on the Horizon, a show that will explore roughly 1,000 years of creative output. Coincidentally, an O'Keeffe exhibition is also opening at the Museum this month. Although, this show deals with her time spent at Alfred Stieglitz’s sprawling family place in rural New York, not the American Southwest. Modern Nature: Georgia O'Keeffe and Lake George looks at 55 works done between 1918 and the early 1930s, when the artist retreated to the region for part of the year.
On February 15, the de Young's Textile Arts Council presents a morning lecture about her now iconic fashion sense: Reflecting Art: Signature Style of Georgia O'Keeffe.
