In 1949 Georgia O’Keeffe donated 101 works of art, ranging from African masks to Modernist paintings, to Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee. Most of the objects had been collected by O’Keeffe’s late husband, Alfred Stieglitz, a photographer, gallery owner, and tireless champion of American Modernists, including O’Keeffe, Charles Demuth, Arthur Dove, Marsden Hartley, and John Marin, among many others.
Today, a partnership has been forged between Fisk University and Crystal Bridges that allows this important collection to be shared between Nashville and Bentonville on a biannual basis.
An audio tour of this collection is available that provides additional insights into the history and impact of photographer and impresario Alfred Stieglitz, the modern artists he championed, and several of the works of art included in Stieglitz Collection.
The Audio Tour is part of the Crystal Bridges app, sponsored by Cox Communication.
