Happy Birthday to Georgia O'Keeffe

Today marks Georgia O'Keeffe's 123rd birthday. Our museum is fortunate to include several works by this renowned artist in our collection. Photographer Eliot Porter took some wonderful pictures of Ms. O'Keeffe during a family rafting trip through Glen Canyon, Utah, in 1961.

The American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works has a section “find a conservator” on its website. This is an excellent resource for anyone interested in preserving a personal treasure.
