November 1….The Lubbock Heritage Society Program: “Canyon Suite: Mistake, Fiasco or Downright Fraud” - This program will be given by Jack Becker, co-author of “Georgia O’Keeffe in Texas: A Guide.” In 1987 just one year after artist Georgia O’Keeffe’s death, 28 previously unknown works of art attributed to O’Keeffe were “found” in a garage in Amarillo, TX. The watercolors, which became known as the Canyon Suite eventually sold for over $5 million. The story of their discovery, sale, resale and eventual return to the Santa Fe art dealer who named them the Canyon Suite is convoluted, illuminating, but offers a window into how the art world works. The presentation, “Canyon Suite: Mistake, Fiasco, or Downright Fraud,” delves into how the 28 watercolors became the talk of the art world in the late 80’s early 90’s. Southwest Collection Formby Room, Texas Tech Campus; 2 p.m.
