History Speaks: Georgia O’Keeffe
4 p.m.
Naper Settlement, 523 S. Webster St., Naperville

Georgia O’Keeffe was one of the most popular American artists of the 20th century. O’Keefe painted, drew and sculpted an incredible array of subjects over her career. She is likely the most famous artist associated with the Santa Fe region. Still misunderstood and misinterpreted even in the 21st century, her work was crucial to the history of modernism in America. In this program, art historian Jeff Mishur will discuss the range of O’Keefe’s art, from her daring and innovative abstractions of the 1910s and 1920s to her elegant investigations of various subject matter, such as architecture, landscapes and flowers. Registration is required. Call 630-420-6010.
