From the renowned collections of Rudolf Staechelin and Karl Im Obersteg, over 60 celebrated paintings created during the mid-19th and 20th centuries by 22 world-famous artists will be on view. This exhibition marks the first occasion for these collections to be exhibited together in the US.
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.
