Georgia O'Keeffe in New Mexico: Architecture, Katsinam, and the Land 

When: Feb. 11-April 28 2013

According to a quick spin through Wikipedia, the view of the Cerro Pedernal from Georgia O'Keeffe's Ghost Ranch was one of the artist's favorites. "I painted it often enough thinking that, if I did so, God would give it to me." Upon O'Keeffe's death at 98, relatives scattered her ashes up there. Yet the Pedernal isn't the only aspect of New Mexico that O'Keeffe loved — she also painted the local architecture and Native American idols, like the Hopi katsina tithu (commonly known as kachina dolls). That's the conceit behind the 53-piece Georgia O'Keeffe in New Mexico: Architecture, Katsinam, and the Land, now on display at the Denver Art Museum (100 W. 14th Ave. Pkwy., denverartmuseum.org). The show is included in general admission — $3 to $13, free for members — and on display Tuesdays through Sundays through April 28. — Edie Adelstein
