Touring Abiquiu

To follow up my blog entry from last week that detailed the intricacies of object cataloging at Miss O’Keeffe’s Abiquiu home, I think it is fitting that this week I bring some attention to the resuming of tours at the house! Starting tomorrow, March 10, tours of Miss O’Keeffe’s home and studio at Abiquiu will be available to the public.  The Museum stages excellent, hour-long tours that are led by some brilliant tour guides, and I highly recommend the experience to anyone visiting the area.  For a brief glimpse of what you might expect to see on a tour, take a look at these photographs of the home and studio from the Museum’s online collection.
