Georgia O'Keeffe Museum receives $100,000 catalog grant

UPI News Service, 01/13/2005 

The Henry Luce Foundation has given the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe a $100,000 grant to catalog an archive it received in 2003 from William I. Homer.

Homer was a leading scholar of American modern art and photography.

A spokesman for the museum said the archive includes extensive correspondence pertaining to Homer's research during a long career as teacher and historian, as well as records of interviews he had with many leading American artists including O'Keeffe, who lived out her final years as a painter in Santa Fe and died in 1986.

The museum's research center opened in 2001 with the stated goal of helping the public understand the modern art movement in the United States beginning in the 1890s. The grant will make it possible for the museum to house the large Homer archive and digitize it so that it will be available to other institutions on CD-ROM and the Internet.

The Luce Foundation was set up by the founder of the Time-Life publishing empire and has been a leader in providing visible storage-study centers for American museums. The latest such center will open at the Brooklyn Museum in New York next weekend, providing public access to 1,500 objects from the museum's reserve collections.
