Enjoy a Free Weekend at the Phillips Collection
The Phillips Collection kicks off the 90 Years of New anniversary year with a free weekend of activities (including free champagne), featuring the grand reopening of the newly renovated Phillips house, birthday cakes from some of D.C.’s finest pastry chefs, the opening of the Anniversary Reading Room, the debut of Howard Hodgkin’s spectacular 20-foot-long etchings, As Time Goes By, and more.
Fast-paced “relay tours” offer a choice of ten-minute talks at each of 90 works of art. Visitors may also enjoy a new “things to do in 90 minutes” self-guided tour or the Phillips’s recently launched mobile app. Admission is free all weekend.
