Last week, staff from the Phillips were excited to be present for  the groundbreaking of phase III of Town Hall Education Arts Recreation Campus (THEARC). The museum recently announced a long-term partnership with THEARC that will offer dynamic, multi-generational programs grounded in the notion that art, when integrated with personal experience, can change lives. We’re excited to get started!

Vampires vs. Zombies

The October edition of Phillips after 5 took inspiration from The Washington Ballet’s upcoming production of Dracula (October 24-November 4) and, of course, one of the year’s most festive holidays– Halloween. In case you missed the sold-out event, check out my short video of very talented students from TWB@THEARC performing choreography from Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Or better yet, get a ticket to the ballet and go see Dracula in person (Phillips after 5 guests receive an exclusive offer of 15%-off tickets to all performances.
