Iconic Artist Georgia O’Keeffe and her Artist Sisters: Complex Issues of Identity
Presented by Barbara Buhler Lynes
The title of Broward Women’s Alliance member, Barbara Buhler Lynes’ September presentation, reflects her history as an art historian and scholar. She is the founding curator and director of the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her presentation will focus on how O’Keeffe supported and promoted her sisters’ art ambitions through the 1920’s and why and when she turned on them in the 1930’s demanding they both abandon their careers.
Barbara holds two doctorates – one from Indiana University in Art History, and one from the University of California in French Literature. She is fluent in three languages, and over the years has worked as an art historian, art professor, author, exhibition director, and independent scholar. She has been welcomed as an author, speaker and professor at such institutions as the Dartmouth College and Vanderbilt University, with Fellowships at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC and the National Endowment for the Arts. She has written more than 21 publications and directed numerous national exhibitions. Barbara retired recently from the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale as the Sunny Kaufman Senior Curator, and is currently working on another book.
The Broward Women’s Alliance Scholarship was created in 1997 to benefit women who need support to advance their professional goals through achieving a higher education degree. Over the years, that purpose has not changed., but the status of the BWA has. In 2019, we became a non-profit foundation.
