Since the opening of the exhibition, visitors to Van Gogh Repetitions have been giving us their best impressions of the Postman Joseph Roulin in the hopes of winning one of four monthly prizes. The competition has been fierce, and the three above winners have taken home prizes for October, November, and December. Our final winner will be selected on January 20, 2014; so grab your beard cutout at the Phillips museum shop and Instagram or Tweet a photo with it using #instavangogh for a chance to win a Van Gogh Repetitions exhibition catalogue.
In many ways, the story of Angels, Demons, and Savages: Pollock, Ossorio, Dubuffet unfolds in East Hampton, where Ossorio settled and Pollock lived (and painted) with his wife Lee Krasner in what is now the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center. Here is a virtual tour of the abstract expressionist’s homestead (with captions provided by the Stony Brook Foundation-run site), which a participant in this online game (and two friends) will visit later this summer.
The artists in Snapshot: Painters and Photography, Bonnard to Vuillard captured special moments with loved ones. Their photographs reveal their worlds—from reading a newspaper at home to playing with their kids on the beach. Now the Phillips is calling all amateur filmmakers to share their worlds on the big screen.
The Snapshot Home Video Contest asks filmmakers to create short videos (3 min. max) focusing on life at home with family and friends. A panel of judges (independent film curator Caroline Elliott, DC Film Alliance Director and DC Shorts Founder Jon Gann, Phillips Digital Media Manager and new media
artist Michelle Herman, and Washington Post Style Blog writer Maura Judkis) will select ten finalists for a public screening at the Phillips on April 12. That night, the audience will vote for a favorite, and the winning video will go on to be screened during the DC Shorts Film Festival in September, among other great prizes.
Visit Snapshot to get inspired, then create your video, submit it here by March 25, and you may be on your way to Oscar gold!
