Odyssey: Living History, Georgia O'Keeffe and Frida Kahlo

You will meet each artist, brought to life by Colleen Webster, hear their life stories, and learn about their careers. An accompanying projected show of the works and photographs of each of these influential painters will illuminate their personal and professional impact. While O'Keeffe was first known as the wife of innovative photographer Alfred Stieglitz, she soon created iconic works that elevated her own status as an artist of the early 20th century. Twenty years O'Keeffe's junior, Kahlo was also initially eclipsed by the work of her husband, muralist Diego Rivera; her brief career and life still managed to rise to the attention of viewers and critics alike. These two strong women met several times, exchanged letters, and visited each other. After two interactive evenings (questions about the artists and the performer are encouraged), you will know O'Keeffe and Kahlo and their art more intimately.
