Visitors closely studied and discussed paintings and sculptures by Georgia O’Keeffe on display at the ongoing exhibit titled ‘Georgia O’Keeffe: Abstraction’. The exhibition displays over 100 works of O’Keeffe, ranging from the charcoals of 1915, to abstract art which features bones and flowers, to the watercolors of 1970s.  It also includes Alfred Stieglitz’s 14 photographic portraits of O’Keeffe. Stieglitz circle’s installation is also on display as part of the permanent collection at Phillips for which visitors don’t have to pay the exhibition price to see the works.
