Don’t miss it! Last week of Georgia O’Keeffe

July 25th, 2017

Georgia O’Keeffe, American, 1887 – 1986. Painting. Black Door with Red, 1954 oil paint on canvas. Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk, VA, Bequest of Walter P. Chrysler, Jr.

Flowers come and go with the seasons – and the same goes for Georgia O’Keeffe’s beautiful blooms on canvas. Georgia O’Keeffe, the AGO’s ambitious and career-spanning retrospective on one of America’s most beloved painters, must close its run on Sunday, July 30.

Since the exhibition opened to the public on April 22, Torontonians have fallen in love with O’Keeffe and her paintings (which go far beyond her most famous flowers) – and so have critics. But no one has become more attached to the works of art than AGO curator Georgiana Uhlyarik. Every day last week, Georgiana did a series Facebook Live interviews from inside the Gallery, letting AGO fans who haven’t been inside the exhibition yet get a peek at just what they’re missing. Watch the videos below (and then get your tickets for the final days!):

And finally, once the last visitor has left the exhibition, it’s someone’s job to make sure all the pieces generously loaned to us get back safe and sound to their rightful owners. That person is Dale Mahar at the AGO, our traffic coordinator. Listen to her interview with Georgiana here (and learn how Dale is breaking Georgiana’s professional heart).
