The new Phillips website captures the breadth of the museum’s programming and scope of the collection; incorporates video, audio, and social media in a streamlined fashion; and employs some of the latest technologies.
Among the new and improved features, I’d like to note a few items I’m particularly excited about:
When browsing the collection, you have access to beautifully reproduced visuals and rich information about the art in the collection
The Multimedia section brings together the museum’s many audio, video, and interactive productions, including videos of special exhibitions and events, as well as the heartwarming “Love Stories” interviews
The museum’s public programs are varied and plentiful—you can easily browse programs by type, with especially easy access to Sunday Concerts and Phillips after 5 schedules
The lively Experiment Station blog—which features daily behind-the-scenes stories and tidbits about the museum—is more easily accessed on the homepage
Educators, parents, and students have access to an array of K–12 educational resources relating to works in the collection that integrate art into other core subjects
I hope you enjoy exploring the site as much as I have, as we strive to be the forward-thinking institution that founder Duncan Phillips envisioned.
