Seeing Nature: Landscape Masterworks from the Paul G. Allen Family Collection opens this Saturday, February 6. Here are some photos our staff snapped in the galleries just after everything went on the walls.
Manager of Exhibitions Liza Strelka snapped photos of the galleries where we’re preparing to install Seeing Nature: Landscape Masterworks from the Paul G. Allen Family Collection. She captured the brief moment between freshly painted walls and the arrival of the works for display.
The collecting instinct reaches its apotheosis in books.–Lawrence Clark Powell, “The Loves Have I,” in A Passion for Books, 1958
Nearly 5% of participants in our Gauguin to Picasso: Masterworks from Switzerland interpretive station have shared their passion for collecting books. With reasons ranging from gaining knowledge, traveling to faraway places, enjoying the pure act of reading, or thinking of books as friends, the Phillips is a haven for bookworms of all types.
Share your love of books, or whatever you collect, by visiting the exhibition or creating your own at home and share it with #PhillipsGoesSwiss. Join us at tonight’s Phillips after 5 to participate in a community collection project!
