Georgia O’Keeffe fans won’t want to miss the on-stage conversation between Barney Ebsworth and curator Theresa Papanikolas on Wednesday, Jan. 8.

Ebsworth, who divides his time between O‘ahu and Seattle, is a Honolulu Museum of Art trustee and one of the country’s preeminent collectors of American modernist art. He owns five O’Keeffe works and was a close friend of the artist. He even got married at O’Keeffe’s Ghost Ranch.

Part of programming for Georgia O’Keeffe and Ansel Adams: The Hawai‘i Pictures, on view through Jan. 12.
