Outing to Phillips Collection

We will travel by Metro to the Phillips Collection, a short walk from the Dupont Circle Metro on the Red Line. The Phillips Collection is home to an extraordinary collection of more than 5,000 works ranging from French impressionism and American modernism to contemporary art.

Admission to the extensive permanent collection is free.

There is also a special exhibit on view now, The Warmth of Other Suns: Stories of Global Displacement, "presenting historical and contemporary works by approximately 75 artists that pose urgent questions around the experiences and perceptions of migration and the current global refugee crisis." 
There is a $10 charge for this exhibit (though free to Phillips Collection members), which includes a brief introductory talk at 11:00 AM.

The Phillips also has a cafe, for those wanting to purchase lunch.

Meet at Takoma Metro upper (train) level near the elevator access spot at 10:00 on August 29. We will leave on the first train that arrives after 10:00. Please bring a Metro Card (can be purchased at Takoma Station) If you're driving to Metro, bring quarters for parking meters. If you have trouble registering online, contact Gina Gaspin by email (preferable) at or phone, 301-891-2549.
