About Plaza Blanca
Made famous by local artists Georgia O'Keeffe, these landscapes
in a valley of the Rio Chama hills near the village of Abiquiu,
when she made a series of paintings about the places she called
"The White Place", or in Spanish "Plaza Blanca", this area of
New Mexico is now on the grounds of the Dar Al Islam education
center and mosque.
Although private land the center welcomes visitors who wish
to hike and view the awe inspiring landscapes which may be known
from O'Keeffe's painting or the many motion pictures which have
used it as a backdrop.
This web site is designed to draw attention and provide
information on this remarkable piece both of American
landscape, but also historic and artistic interest.
It is not associated in any way with the Dar Al Islam
Center or Georgia O'Keeffe's estate.
