It is with a heavy heart that we watch the de-installation of Sandra Cinto’s Intersections work, One Day, After the Rain. The multi-panel canvas painting, chiefly created on site, was unveiled to our visitors with the arrival of another beloved presence at the museum, our Tryst café. The café will continue to provide a place for conversation, rest, and refreshment. Cinto’s work will move on.
Sunny skies and relatively warm temperatures Friday helped make for a smooth de-installation of Xavier Veilhan’s The Bear sculpture from the plinth at 21st and Q. The Bear will now begin a long journey back to it’s permanent home in the Northwest. During his time here, the Bear cheerfully welcomed visitors to the Phillips – we are a little sad to say goodbye.
