Georgia On My Mind
Georgia O'Keeffe called the Texas Panhandle "the place where the sky met the howling wind." A leading figure of modern American art, O’Keeffe taught high school in Amarillo, so it's only fitting that the Amarillo Museum of Art is home to not one but four O'Keeffes. The Museum's Collection is based around modern art, and also includes works by Franz Kline, Fritz Scholder, Elaine de Kooning, Larry Bell, Edward Steichen, Walker Evans, Alfred Stieglitz, and many others. The Museum's Price Collection highlights Middle Eastern textiles, as well as Edo woodblock prints and South and Southeast Asian sculpture. Photography in the collection includes works by Dorothea Lange, whose depictions of the Depression-era dustbowl are legendary. The Edward Durrell Stone Fine Arts Complex of Amarillo College, which houses the museum, is a piece of art in its own right.
