    Modern architect O'Neil Ford (1905–1982) was hired to design a master plan and the buildings of the relocated Trinity University campus in partnership with fellow Texas architect Bartlett Cocke (1901–1992). Construction began in 1950, and the current campus opened in 1952.

    This painting expresses O’Keeffe’s spiritual and emotional ties to the West Texas landscape. In 1916, while she was teaching in Canyon, Texas, O’Keeffe wrote a letter to Alfred Stieglitz:

    The plains—the wonderful great big sky—makes me want to breathe so deep that I'll break—There is so much of it… It seems so funny that a week ago it was the mountains I thought the most wonderful—and today it's the plains—I guess it's the feeling of bigness that just carries me away…
