Drawn Archive Project

Identifier: MS-36

Scope and Content Note

The collection includes graphite drawings by students from the Santa Fe University of Art and Design (SFUAD) participating in the Drawn Archive Project. In 2014, the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum and the SFUAD partnered to provide opportunities to create drawings based on the unique objects in the Museum’s collection. The project originated from the Museum's desire to document the thousands of objects in the Museum’s collection that includes Georgia O’Keeffe’s clothing, furnishings, and personal property, in addition to its extensive holdings of her artwork. From 2014 to 2017, student interns studying art and photography participated in creating systematic, professional drawings of objects to make them more visible to the public. After completion, the drawings were photographed by SFUAD photography students. Both the drawings and digital photographs are held by the Museum.
