Library presents The Art of Nature
Apr. 3, 2018
Orland Park Public Library will be hosting a Georgia O’Keeffe presentation on Wednesday, May 9 at 7 p.m. in room 104.
One of the most acclaimed artists of the 20th century, O'Keeffe is known for her brilliant paintings of flowers, nature and the landscapes around her home in New Mexico. In this program you'll gain a better understanding of her art, as well as of the complex person whose myth making encompassed both her paintings and her life. Leslie Goddard will present this living history portrayal of this most influential artist.
Goddard is an award-winning actress and scholar who has been portraying famous women and presenting history lectures for more than ten years.
She holds a Ph.D. from Northwestern University specializing in U.S. history and American Studies as well as master's degrees in both theater and museum studies. A former museum director, she is the author of two books on Chicago history and currently works full-time as a historical interpreter, author, and public speaker.
