The Phillips Turns 100


The museum in Washington, DC, founded by Duncan and Marjorie Phillips, was a sensation when it opened as a museum of modern art, and it’s been a refuge and inspiration since, including, at times, during the pandemic. “Dorothy Kosinski, director of the museum, tells a story: ‘I was standing outside of the Phillips in the fall when we were open for a while. A woman came out, exhaled, and said, ‘Oh! That was such a wonderful vacation!'” – NPR
