SAIC Students Celebrate Alum Georgia O’Keeffe in Exhibition with SITE Galleries

In celebration of Georgia O’Keeffe: My New Yorks opening at the Art Institute of Chicago, current SAIC students were invited to submit artworks to SITE Galleries inspired by alum Georgia O’Keeffe (SAIC 1905–06, HON 1967) and the city of Chicago. Utilizing O’Keeffe’s sense of the changing cityscape of 1920’s New York City and her iconic florals, artworks in the student exhibition ranged from various floral inspired pieces to city skylines and grids.

The juried exhibition, My Chicagos: SAIC Students Honor Georgia O’Keeffe, ran from June 10–14 in the Sharp Building with a contest. One student’s artwork, Bella Luna Fulk’s Fatal Venus, won the student contest and received a $1,500 cash prize as well as her work being reproduced on vinyl on the iconic Carson Pirie Scott building.
