The bus for Brooklyn leaves soon! Just a few seats remain for our members’ bus trip on June 8 to visit the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Brooklyn Museum, including a guided tour of Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern.
Founded in 1910, Brooklyn Botanic Garden is one of North America's premier public gardens. A 52-acre urban oasis situated in the heart of Brooklyn, it annually hosts more than 700,000 visitors from near and far, and inspires them to explore how plants are essential to life. Guests explore the garden at their leisure.
Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Moderntakes a new look at how the renowned modernist artist proclaimed her progressive, independent lifestyle through a self-crafted public persona—including her clothing and the way she posed for the camera. The exhibition expands our understanding of O'Keeffe by focusing on her wardrobe, shown for the first time alongside key paintings and photographs. Guests receive a guided tour of the exhibition. Donna Gustafson, Curator of American Art and Mellon Director of Academic Programs, provides additional insight on the trip.
