Über den Künstler

Georgia O'Keeffe

Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986), an iconic American artist, is renowned for her groundbreaking contributions to modern art and her distinctive depictions of nature and landscapes. Born on November 15, 1887, in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, O'Keeffe displayed a remarkable talent for art from an early age. She embarked on a transformative artistic journey, becoming a pioneer of American modernism and an influential figure in the art world.

O'Keeffe's artistic vision was characterized by her bold use of color, precise attention to detail, and a unique ability to capture the essence of her subjects. Her notable works often featured enlarged flowers, New Mexico landscapes, and architectural abstractions.

The Unemployed Philosopher's Guild

The origins of the Unemployed Philosophers Guild are shrouded in mystery. Some accounts trace the Guild's birth to Athens in the latter half of the 4th century BCE. Allegedly, several lesser philosophers grew weary of the endless Socratic dialogue endemic in their trade and turned to crafting household implements and playthings. (Hence the assertions that Socrates quaffed his hemlock poison from a Guild-designed chalice, though vigorous debate surrounds the question of whether it was a "disappearing" chalice.)

Others argue that the UPG dates from the High Middle Ages, when the Philosophers Guild entered the world of commerce by selling bawdy pamphlets to pilgrims facing long lines for the restroom. Business boomed until 1211 when Pope Innocent III condemned the publications. Not surprisingly, this led to increased sales, even as half our membership was burned at the stake.

More recently, revisionist historians have pinpointed the birth of the Guild to the time it was still cool to live in New York City's Lower East Side. Two brothers turned their inner creativity and love of paying rent towards fulfilling the people's needs for finger puppets, warm slippers, coffee cups, and cracking up at stuff.

Most of the proceeds go to unemployed philosophers (and their associates). A portion also goes to some groups working on profound causes.
