Georgia O’Keeffe “Living Modern”

This is really exciting, Deac families.  A Georgia O’Keeffe exhibition, Living Modern, is coming to Reynolda House Museum of American Art, which is essentially right in Wake’s backyard.

This is one of the items on the Wake smorgasbord that your Deacs should not miss.  They will be able to be admitted for free as a student (with their ID).  Why not take a bite of art and culture from one of our country’s incredible artists?

And parents and families should not miss it either – so think about ordering tickets for when you drop your Deac off at the start of the semester, or if you are coming for Family Weekend.  Details below.

Reynolda House Museum of American Art will kick off its centennial year celebrations with the landmark exhibition Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern. This exhibition explores how the artist’s modern sensibility saturated her art, her life, her homes, and her carefully fashioned public (and private) personas. Reynolda House is the exhibition’s only venue south of New York.

Admission will be based on timed entry tickets purchased in advance, with several entry times available for each day. Tickets are $18 for adults and are available online at

Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern presents a completely new, highly focused, and meticulously researched perspective on the unified modernist aesthetic of O’Keeffe’s dress and art. It will showcase a number of carefully chosen paintings by O’Keeffe and photographs of her and her homes by Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams, Todd Webb, and Phillippe Halsman. Additionally, exhibited for the first time, her understated and carefully designed garments dating from the 1910s to the 1980s will be presented alongside key paintings and photographs of her at various points in her career.
