Georgia O’Keeffe and Her Visit to Wiawaka

Categories: History, NYS History, People

Wiawaka originally included a planned artist’s retreat called Wakonda where celebrated artist Georgia O’Keeffe was invited to stay as a young artist and member of the Art Students League. This introduction to Lake George had a monumental effect on O’Keeffe’s life and art, and she spent several years working in the area.
