The Phillips Collection 2016 Annual Gala

An evening unlike any other in Washington, the Annual Gala attracted more than 500 cultural, political, diplomatic, and business leaders to dine among the Phillips’s masterworks. With the support of many local and national partners, the black-tie event includes a cocktail reception, dinner of Middle Eastern-inspired delights, and a champagne reception with live music. The evening continues with a Contemporaries Bash at Dock 5 at Union Market featuring dessert, dancing, and so much more!

Celebrating its 95th anniversary, the Phillips is a place where artists, musicians, writers, civic and business leaders, and others come together to share in creative conversations. America’s first museum of modern art, paintings by Renoir, Rothko, Degas, O’Keeffe, Modigliani, Morandi, van Gogh, and Diebenkorn are among the many stunning works that fill this unique museum, which combines modern galleries with the family home of its founder, Duncan Phillips. The collection continues to develop with selective new acquisitions, many by contemporary artists.
