New York-based sculptor Arlene Shechet is known for glazed ceramic sculptures that are off-kilter yet hang in a balance between stable and unstable, teetering between the restraint of intellect and the insistence of instinct.
This special exhibition features 15 rarely seen silkscreen prints by Jacob Lawrence portraying the life of Toussaint L’Ouverture, the former slave turned revolutionary leader who led the fight for the liberation of Haiti during the French revolution.
Through his lithographs and posters, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec captured the heart of Parisian nightlife in dynamic cabaret and café-concert scenes. The Phillips Collection presents one of the foremost collections of the artist’s prints drawn from his most prolific years.

One-on-One Enrique Martínez Celaya / Albert Pinkham Ryder
As part of the One-on-One series, one work by Enrique Martínez Celaya is placed in conversation with several paintings by Albert Pinkham Ryder.
Throughout the 2016–2017 school year, all 420 students at Inspired Teaching School participated in the Art Links: Museum-in-Residence program, connecting works of art in the museum’s collection to classroom themes.
In fall 2016, the Phillips collaborated with a local best practice educators who used Prism.K12 methodology to develop and implement art-integrated lessons inspired by Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series.
For more than 25 years, The Phillips Collection has held a staff show to feature the works of artists employed at the museum. In 1984, the staff show was endowed by the family of James McLaughlin, an accomplished still-life painter who worked at the museum for 50 years.
