March 20 The Philips Collection: Masterful Art

It’s worth the cost of admission just to see Renoir’s painting “Luncheon of the Boating Party”. The Phillips Collection, near Residences on the Avenue, is a manageable size, making it friendly, familiar, and easy to navigate. Here, you can enjoy just under 3,000 works by masters such as Van Gogh, Picasso, Homer, O’Keefe, and Rothko, among other well-known names. The collection was started by Duncan Phillips in 1921, and it was the first modern art museum in the country! For a real treat, stop by during one of the After Five events, held on the first Thursday of each month, to enjoy live music, stimulating lectures, and a cash bar — it’s a fun, enjoyable, and educational way to experience the museum in a new light! If you’d like to partake in an After Five event, reservations are suggested, as they tend to get very crowded. Even better, admission is a bargain at $12 for adults, and free for kids under 18.
