Inspired by Jasper Johns’s use of American Sign Language in his recent work, the Phillips organized brief introductions to ASL during Phillips after 5 last week. Later this month, the Phillips and the International Club of DC team up to offer weekly French, Italian, Spanish, German, and Russian meet-ups with expert native speakers in Tryst at the Phillips cafe.
