Education & Community Engagement

The Phillips Collection’s Department of Education and Community Engagement strives to provide high-quality, engaging experiences that equitably serve the DC community and beyond.

The Department designs relevant programs accessible to diverse audiences, collaborates and strategizes with community partners, and provides, as Duncan Phillips said,  “joy-giving, life-enhancing” experiences through art and wellness.
