O’Keeffe’s iconic images of flowers, New Mexico landscapes, and sun-bleached animal skulls are shown in a renovated Pueblo-Revival style church that’s as elegantly minimalist as the art itself. The museum holds the world’s largest collection of her work, and we recommend taking a docent tour, or the excellent self-guided audio tour for insights into the ground-breaking female artist who put New Mexico on the map for many of today’s visitors. Also check out photos of the O’Keeffe by her husband Alfred Stieglitz, work by her contemporary modernists, and traveling exhibitions. The gift store is a design-guru delight, and the fancy O’Keeffe Café next door (open to all) is a cut above the average museum eatery. O’Keeffe pilgrims can book a guided tour of her beautiful Abiquiu home and studio about 50 miles northwest of Santa Fe—you drive yourself to Abiquiu. The popular tours, organized by the O’Keeffe Museum, take only 12 people and are limited in number (none in winter), so reserve a few months in advance if possible.
