The Phillips Collection just announced that the museum will be extending its hours for the final two-weeks of the Georgia O’Keeffe: Abstraction exhibition.  I had the chance to check out the exhibit a few months ago and it definitely was a real treat.

Now you really don’t have an excuse for not checking it out.

On May 1-2 and May 8-9 the exhibition will be open to visitors from 10AM to 10PM.

The Phillips Collection is hosting a new event called De-Frost Fridays.  When you purchase admission to see Georgia O’Keeffe Abstraction on a Friday this winter, you will also get free cup of spicy southwestern hot chocolate by FoodArts in the Phillips Cafe.  De-Frost Fridays will continue now through March 19th between the hours of 10 AM and 4 PM.

The Phillips Collection is located at 1600 21st. NW.
