A Southwestern Celebration



The Indianapolis Museum of Art's newest exhibit, Georgia O'Keeffe and the Southwestern Still Life opened to the public November 2. The night before the official opening, the museum hosted a special party to celebrate the show. With a focus on both O'Keeffe's work and the traditions of the Day of the Dead, event organizers included traditional folk art crafts and bold sugar-skull-inspired facepainting in the night's agenda. More than 300 revelers snacked on churros and tres leches cake while listening to music courtesy of deejays Kyle Long and Scott Stulen, who also happens to be the Indianapolis Museum of Art's curator of audience experiences and performance. Sky Blue Window's frequent photographer Whitney Walker captured the evening's festivities.
