#3036 Special Event and Lunch:   An Audience with Georgia O’Keeffe: Letters, Paintings, and Photographs

Presenter: Audrey McGuire (Georgia O’Keeffe is being portrayed by Audrey McGuire.)


I am Georgia O’Keeffe. I’ve always known what I wanted. When I was small,

I played alone for hours and hours. I do things other people don’t do.


Hear the story of one of America’s most famous artists. Follow her uniquely spirited, artistic journey from the prairies of Wisconsin, to the plains of Texas, to the city of New York, to the desert of New Mexico with a portrayal of Georgia O’Keeffe!

Audrey joined the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center Docent program in 2006. She embarked upon portraying several artists for students who participated in the Fine Arts Center’s Imagination Celebration. She sought to bring Georgia O’Keeffe to life for the students. Audrey also led Docent tours as Georgia O’Keeffe for the Eloquent Objects: Georgia O’ Keeffe exhibit at the Fine Arts Center in 2015 and led a tour for the docents from The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
