Family Fun Day

Family Fun Day: From My Head, To-Ma-Toes!

  • Sunday, June 11
  • 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM MT
  • Santa Fe, NM

Join us to celebrate the art of gardening through a variety of hands-on artmaking, creative activities, and story time in our very own Research Center Garden!  

Georgia O’Keeffe loved to garden. She would grow everything from beautiful flowers to grand apricot trees to delicious vegetables! The fruits and vegetables that O’Keeffe grew in her garden would then make their way to the meals she would prepare in her kitchen. In many countries and cultures, designing beautiful gardens is treated as a fine art. In Japan, for instance, Zen monks created Japanese gardens. In Europe in the 1700s, kings and queens had formal gardens built. Join us to celebrate the art of gardening through a variety of hands-on artmaking, creative activities, and story time in our very own Research Center Garden!

Large pinkish/orange shell that dominates most of the canvas, with a much smaller shell beside it on the lower left. Both are oval in shape and open to their undersides, exposing the dark glossy pink of the inside of a shell. They are nestled on a white cloth or tissue paper that has folds suggesting a depth, as if the objects are in a box. The larger shell is chipped on it's upper left tip.
