In celebration of the artist Georgia O’Keeffe’s 125th birthday, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum has launched a photo competition. O’Keeffe was a famous artist in the 1920’s and after. She was well known for her paintings, sometimes abstract, other times realistic, in which she portrayed flowers, mountains, shells and landscapes. She was one of the few women who were influential artists at that time, while normally only men ruled in that profession.
“When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.” – Georgia O’Keeffe
In her spirit, you can send in photographs on the theme of flowers. All the winning images will be published in the spring issue of O’Keeffe Magazine and on the website of the museum.
There are two deadlines for this competition: Thursday, November 15th, 2012 (Early deadline with a reduced entry fee), and Wednesday, December 19th, 2012 (Final deadline with a full entry fee).
