To celebrate the Washington Nationals’s clinching the NL East with a win in Atlanta, the Phillips is showing off its Natitude with bobbleheads, artist jerseys, Nats caps, and even our very own Night Baseball artwork by Marjorie Phillips in the galleries. GO NATS!
To celebrate the last month of Made in the USA, we’ve asked Phillips staff to create acrostic poems for works in the exhibition. We’ll feature some of our favorite submissions over the next few weeks. In this post, Michele De Shazo, Assistant Registrar for Visual Resources and Collection, describes a work she finds “creepy” with three great words.
Arthur G. Dove, Lake Afternoon

Last week preschool and kindergarten students from Tyler Elementary School took cues from the masters. In the art workshop, preschoolers experimented with different tools to make abstract expressionist paintings, just like Jackson Pollock. Later in the day kindergarteners drew their own versions of Arthur Dove’s Cows in Pasture (1935) and Georgia O’Keeffe’s Red Hills, Lake George (1927).
