Get ready to experience Georgia O’Keeffe – the pioneering artist known for her massive paintings of flowers and bones found in the New Mexico desert – in a whole new way.

What is happening: The Denver Art Museum on Sunday unveiled a new exhibit featuring never-before-seen photographs by one of America’s most iconic artists.

Why is this important: The exhibit “finally shines a light on his work as a photographer,” Eric Paddock, curator of photography at DAM, said in a statement.

  • “O’Keeffe explored the world with a camera to refine and clarify his vision as a painter. These photographs provide a startling insight into his work,” he added.

To note : The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe.

  • Visitors can explore the showcase until November 6 in the Gallagher Family Gallery of the Hamilton Building on Level 1.
