There are plenty of mesmerizing works on view at the Phillips, but for this month’s ArtGrams, we’re highlighting photos from visitors who looked beyond the canvas.
Via Instagrammer @wolfofkstreet: “Tête-à-tête chairs in this incredible Georgian Revival house turned gallery. Just one of the many reasons this is one of my favorite places in the city.”

Via Instagrammer @laura_ewan: “New art installation outside Phillips. Miss walking by this every day.”
We can never get enough of the Music Room. Here’s a great image captured by Instagrammer @Sstephaniediaz.
Imitating works from the American Moments exhibition for a Phillips after 5 InstaChallenge. Great job, @wildeladymaj!
At last week’s Phillips after 5, we challenged visitors to snap photos around the museum to win prizes in an InstaChallenge. Out of tons of great submissions, here’s the cream of the crop.

This month’s ArtGrams features Morris Louis’s large-scale painting Seal (1959). Here are some of our favorite interactions with the work snapped by Instagrammers.
Instagrammer @jonathanaustinart: “Checking out the masterpieces at The Phillips Collection. Best way to start my weekend. Morris Louis’s paintings.”
We see some Louis reflections in this scarf! Shot by @rareformproperties.
Thanks, @belleauroradesigns! “Love the @phillipscollection”
