SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe is considering a major expansion, according to city documents.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports (http://bit.ly/1TP6Nan) that documents obtained through an open-records request reveal emails and sketches that reference a future museum at the current site of the O’Keefee Educaiton Annex.

Roxanne Decyk, president of the museum’s Board of Trustees, denied a proposed project was in the works when reached by phone Saturday.

Decyk says the museum can’t afford any expansion.

The newspaper says the documents show museum and city officials have been having discussions for months about an expansion that could affect a $2.5 million transit center improvement project.

The museum is considered one of Santa Fe’s biggest tourism draws since it opened in 1997.

Nearly 160,000 visited last year.
