Exploring Georgia O’Keeffe’s relationships with science and scientists provides new insights into who she was, how she approached her work, and the ways in which she related to the world in which she lived. This talk will approach the scientific imaginations of Georgia O’Keeffe through a conversation focusing on her construction of a nuclear fallout shelter at her Abiquiú home, and her decades-long collaboration with her conservator, Caroline Keck.
