Lecture: “Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern”

Date: Tue, August 29, 2017
Time: 5:30pm

Reynolda House Museum of American Art


THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT. The lecture will be live-tweeted by @CurateReynolda. Follow along with the hashtag #OKeeffeModern.

Wanda Corn, author and guest curator of Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern, will provide insight into the exhibition and how the renowned modernist artist proclaimed her progressive, independent lifestyle through a self-crafted public persona. Corn is the Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor Emerita in Art History at Stanford University. Light reception to follow.


I was waiting to be noticed that tickets were available.  I checked several times early July and were told I'd be notified when they went on sale.  My husband and I became Renolda House Museum members (we have tickets to view the exhibition the afternoon of July 29) just so we wouldn't miss out on this talk.  We are Georgia O'Keeffe aficionados, been to her museum in Santa Fe and are fascinated by the artist and her art.  Is there a 'wait list' for lecture tickets for no shows? lizatthesprings@gmail.com   

Dear Liz,

Thank you for reaching out about this event, and thank you for being a Member of the Museum. We are starting a wait list for Wanda Corn's lecture, and we will be glad to add your name to it. I will email you directly with more information. 

Response to our Members' email and social media posts about this event was extraordinary, and it reached capacity within just a few days. We are exploring ways to share it via a video feed later in the season. 

We look forward to seeing you later this month to share in this exhibition.

I too would like to be \wiat listed for this lecture.  When I triewd to sign up for the MembersCelebration which is also sold out was the first that I knew this existed.  I had almost completed trying to communicate with you on this technology when it was moved to another non related screen and then lost.  At the reist of a repeat performance I will send this with much less information short of my disappointment at have reduced access to memberrship opportunities becasuew I am a senior citizen who is technologically compromised.  Surely I am not the only one.I hope that I will be able to secure tickets for the exhibitiion.Barbara Henrichs

Trying to respond for the Members Celebration which is also sold out I was only now aware of thye Lecture on 8/292017  I would  like to also be wait listed as I am not technologically savy enough to even unterstand how  to live tweet anything.  I am in the process of trying to navigate the system for tickets to the exhibition, but with medical iasues taking priority uf ia siddicult to commit months in advance.  We have enjoyed our Reynolda House membership for many years, but it seem like recently it is too difficult to figure out how you are xcommunicating information so that we can participate.  I would appriciate any suggestions.Dean and Barbara Henrichs  104 Mulberry Pl.:   Advance, NC 27006The original has retu5rned when I checked reply  I have no idea which if either has been received  Nothing needs to be posted - I would appriciate a way to communicate privately.

Barbara, thank you for your messages. A member of our staff will be in touch with you privately at the number you provided for Membership.

Please waitlist 2 of us.  We cannot attend on 9/7.  Are there any other dates after 9/7??

Hi Laurie,

Thanks for writing. We're sorry to hear you can't make it for our screening of Wanda Corn's lecture on September 7. Keep in mind that we are filming Wanda's talk on August 29 and then showing that recording of her lecture on the following Thursdays: September 7, October 5, and November 2.  There are multiple times to see her recorded lecture :) Wanda will not be in attendance on those dates, but rather, we will show a video of her talk in our auditorium at 6 p.m. 

You can reserve your tickets in advance for those Thursdays (where will be open until 8 p.m.!) at this link. Thank you and we hope to see you soon!
