The Montclair Art Museum (MAM) hosted a Smokin’ Hot Barbeque friend/fundraiser event celebrating the exhibition Georgia O’Keeffe in New Mexico: Architecture, Katsinam, and the Land which features 15 paintings and drawings of Katsina dolls, 30 paintings and works on paper of New Mexico landscapes and architecture.
“This exciting friend/fundraiser embodied O’Keeffe’s passion for southwestern culture, as depicted in our current exhibition Georgia O’Keeffe in New Mexico,”said Lora Urbanelli, MAM director. “Hurricane Sandy tried to put a damper on this special event by forcing us to reschedule, but an enthusiastic crowd of over 300 attendees came out for the new date and kept it ‘smokin’hot.’”
