Announcing the New Georgia O’Keeffe Museum

Design is underway for the new Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with a team comprised of Gluckman Tang Architects, Reed Hilderbrand, and Thinc Design. This uniquely American museum has operated for nearly 25 years old with only 8,000 square feet of gallery space in the center of Santa Fe. A $60M expansion will create a new 54,000 square foot building on a one-acre lot (32,000 square feet at street level and 22,000 square feet below ground for collections care) and almost an acre of community green space.

The O’Keeffe seeks to expand its cultural role, stewardship responsibilities, and educational offerings in Santa Fe and the communities where Georgia O’Keeffe lived and worked. Its green space will flourish with native plants and serve as a gathering place for the community. Construction is expected to begin in late 2022 or early 2023, with the new museum opening by the end of 2024.
