Georgia Goes Camping

By Nancy Walkup, posted on Mar 15, 2010

On my birthday, my husband and I went to see Georgia O’Keeffe at the Cowgirl Hall of Fame in Fort Worth.

The most intriguing thing to me was that the museum had set up her camping equipment to show how she worked out in her beloved landscapes. Everything was military surplus green but her sturdy cot and thick sleeping bag looked pretty comfortable. She also brought along a low table and two children’s chairs to use as seating—very Japanese looking. The accompanying photographs of the actual camping sites were a fascinating addition.
