American artist Georgia O’Keeffe was known more for her art than her clothes. But a new exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum, called “Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern,” celebrates the striking, uncompromising style of the feminist icon.
The exhibit, which runs from March 3 July 23, 2017, is part of a yearlong project celebrating feminist thinking.
