We’re Turning 95!

This year, our 95th anniversary, marks five years to The Phillips Collection’s centennial in 2021. Help us kick off the countdown! There are lots of ways to celebrate:

Join us for a 95th anniversary signature event.
We’re highlighting some of our best programs, events, and performances throughout the year, and wasting no time jumping in. Attend one of the three signature events this month (ring in the New Year at Phillips after 5, and hear from artist Genesis P-Orridge or author Christopher Rothko on his new book about his father), and check the Phillips’s event page for more as the year unfolds.

Participate in a #Phillips95 challenge for a chance to win prizes.
Each month, we’ll issue a #Phillips95 social media challenge. It will change every time—there might be one grand prize winner or 95 winners; sometimes the first to respond wins and sometimes the winner will be randomly selected. Prizes range from admission tickets to memberships to gift bags and more. Check back here and any of our social media for instructions each month.

Visit us on your birthday for free admission.
To thank you for helping us celebrate our birthday, it’s only fair that we celebrate yours! Visit the museum on your birthday in 2016 and receive free admission. Present a valid ID at the admissions desk to redeem.

  1. Looking forward to learning more about the Phillips and being involved in some way, if possible. As a long-time resident of Washington and a supporter of many arts programs throughout the region, I would look forward to programs and events over the coming year or more. Beverly Wyckoff Jckson, Washington, DC & Southern Md.

  2. Congratulations on the nearly 100 years of the Phillips Gallery. I’m looking forward to your various celebrations and gatherings and would personally like to know more about the history of the Gallery and its original founders. Thank you.
