Neo-Impressionism and the Dream of Realities: Painting, Poetry, Music opens this Saturday, September 27. Here are some shots as we put the finishing touches on the galleries. (Pssst! Get your own sneak peek tomorrow, Sept. 25, at a Curator’s Perspective with Exhibition Curator Cornelia Homburg.)
Our neighbors at the Smithsonian American Art Museum are holding an #ArtBirds Social Media Scavenger Hunt during September and October, and if there’s one animal that you’ll see over and over again in works at The Phillips Collection, it’s birds. We have a lot of them. We thought it only fitting to jump in on the fun! This week’s theme is “Birds of Prey,” so we’re submitting this photo of an oddly cheerful boy who’s about to come into direct contact with a hawk roughly the size of his head. Happy #ArtBird-watching!
