Side by Side: Oberlin’s Masterworks at The Phillips Collection opened yesterday and will be on exhibit through January 16th. Twenty-five significant works, 24 paintings and one sculpture, from the collection of the Allen Memorial Art Museum at Oberlin are presented in conjunction with selections from the Phillip’s permanent collection.  Many of the featured works have not left the Allen in half a century, but have made the journey to D.C. for safekeeping while the Allen is currently closed for renovations.

Rare works by painters such as Paul Cézanne, Claude Monet, Mark Rothko, Peter Paul Rubens, and Jan van Eyck are displayed.

Samantha can often be found daydreaming by the Rothkos of the East Gallery, sketching store facades along 14th, and snapping photos with her vintage polaroid at 9:30 club concerts. Since moving to DC in 2007 to get an MFA in Interior Design, her eyes can’t seem to be peeled away from the beautiful things in this city.
