April 3 The Philips Collection: Masterful Works Of Art

At the Philips Collection in D.C., you can browse famous works of art, like Renoir’s “Luncheon of the Boating Party”. Inside this modest size museum, you’ll find just under 3,000 works by the likes of Van Gogh, Picasso, Homer, O’Keefe, and Rothko, as well as many others. The museum was founded back in 1921 by Duncan Phillips, and it was the first modern art museum in the country at the time. For a truly enjoyable experience, visit during one of the Phillips After Five events, held on the first Thursday of each month to enjoy live music, lectures, and a cash bar. It is a great way to experience the museum, and makes for a fabulous night out from Residences on the Avenue. For all the popular events, reservations are recommended, as they can get crowded. Museum admission is a deal at $12 for adults, and free for kids under 18.
