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. Hot chocolate, inspiring art, and a place to warm up during this frigid DC winter; I’m so there.
The Phillips Collection is located at 1600 21st. NW.

“Objective painting is not good painting unless it is good in the abstract sense.” – Georgia O’Keeffe, 1976
When discussing abstract art of the 20th-century, the likes of Kandinsky and Matisse are often the works that most easily come to mind. However, the newest exhibition at The Phillips Collection – Georgia O’Keeffe: Abstraction – suggests the need for a potential addition among the abstract ‘authority’.
