In this behind-the-scenes experience, 20-25 people will go on a detailed tour of The Phillips Collection Library and Archives. They will see how the collection is organized and look at a number of facsimiles of archival items, such as correspondence between Duncan Phillips, artists, and gallery dealers. The group will be taken to a room not open to the public where they can observe crate storage and the museum’s archives. In addition, they will learn about the history of the Phillips Collection beginning in the early twentieth century and up to the present day.
DCAC’s Experience Auction will take place on Thursday, May 18 in the ballroom at the Kennedy Warren Apartments.
