THE PHILLIPS AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
The Phillips Collection’s official app is available for free download in the iTunes Store and Google Play.
The app provides instant access to the 3,500 works of modern and contemporary art in the Phillips’s permanent collection; exhibition and collection audio guides; concert and artist talk podcasts; behind-the-scenes installation videos; interactive floor plans; exhibition and event calendars; and visitor information. Using the Phillips’s free public Wi-Fi, visitors can download the app in minutes.
The Phillips app features a fully searchable mobile collection that takes advantage of touch screen technology to magnify artworks to the brushstroke. Users can build lists of favorite artworks and discover whether they are currently on view. Detailed descriptions, audio guides, and transcripts for hearing impaired users are also available for many artworks. Users can stream audio clips of the popular Sunday Concerts and other podcasts, watch videos of curators introducing special exhibitions, and go behind the scenes with artists as they create site-specific artworks for the Intersections series.
