Did you know that The Phillips Collection was founded as a response to pandemic death, almost 100 years ago, and from its very inception it focused on the healing power of art? Today, their programming offers a chance for all of us to learn, connect and grow in the presence of art. Below, you’ll find a short list of ways to engage in their programming this week, and beyond:
- Check out the weekly Meditation in Galleries (every Wednesday from 12:45-1:15pm ET) which builds on the museum’s Contemplation Audio Tour. Through slow looking at art and meditation we hope that participants will connect deeply to themselves and their communities.
- Dig into summer camp vibes at the first ever virtual Phillips After 5 this Thursday, July 9th ft. tunes by DJ Adrian Loving, a special cocktail/mocktail tutorial from Republic Restoratives Distillery, and (obviously) loads of great artworks to check out.
- Recharge your batteries on July 23rd with their Art and Wellness for Educators (not just for professional educators! We’re looking at you, working parents!), a wellness afternoon and virtual meet-up that kicks off at 3pm ET.
- You can also join them on July 23rd for The Phillips Book Club discussion of Ta-Nahesi Coates’ Between the World and Me (read, or re-read it to get ready); starts at 5:30pm ET.
- Also, they’re hiring!
- Plus, so much more (bookmark this page).
