The Living Room Gallery and The Workshop

Phillips@THEARC

Architectural Process


The Phillips@THEARC Living Room Gallery and Workshop will offer free arts-infused services and programs where residents can actively engage in community-based art, history, and culture with a creative twist. Phillips@THEARC spaces are on schedule to open in 2018 in the new THEARC Phase III building (1901 Mississippi Ave SE, Washington, DC 20020). The Phillips has been working with THEARC architectural firm Sanchez Palmer and WC Smith to design the spaces.

The Living Room Gallery


The Living Room Gallery will be an intimate gathering space and gallery, displaying works from Phillips partnering programs East of the River. The first exhibition, The Art of Storytelling, in collaboration with Double Nickels Theatre, will feature stories and photographs from the Seafarer’s Yacht Club, on display in early 2018.

The Workshop


The Workshop will be a dynamic environment where creativity can come to life. With floor-to-ceiling magnetic whiteboards and large storefront windows, the workshop will be a place for the community to engage in artful activities and programs.
