Join us for The Phillips Collection's 2016 Annual Gala and Contemporaries Bash on May 13!

His Excellency Mohammed Jaham Al-Kuwari, the Ambassador of the State of Qatar, serves as Diplomatic Chair for the Annual Gala, “Arabesque: Patterns of Beauty East-West, A Salute to Qatar.” 

All Gala proceeds support the museum's education programs that inspire creativity, foster a greater understanding of our world, and provide lifelong learning experiences for children, teachers, and families in the Washington, DC, community and across the country.
