October 22, 2009 — Elizabeth Hutton Turner, University of Virginia vice provost for the arts, will give a free public lecture, "Georgia O'Keeffe and a New Line of Vision," on Nov. 3 at 6 p.m. in Campbell Hall, room 153.

Turner is an expert on 20th-century modern art. Before coming to U.Va., she was senior curator at The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., for almost two decades. Among the exhibits she curated was "Georgia O'Keeffe: The Poetry of Things," for which she also wrote the accompanying catalog.
