The Phillips Collection made a splash at this year’s #Artlympics, taking home the gold in the #BestArtRemake category with a re-enactment of William Merritt Chase’s Hide and Seek. Former Museum Assistant and Marketing Intern Piper Grosswendt also staged an award-winning #BestArtTwin submission with the Phillips’s Woman in Profile by Chaim Soutine. As the Artlympics put it on Instagram, “she blue-steeled her way to gold with this photo.” Wondering why there’s a blue goblin-esque creature in the pictures? That’s Artie the Artlympian, official mascot of the Artlympics, presenting the winners with the gold. Congratulations to all participants and winners! We invite you to challenge our title in the 2014 Artlympics.
