Private Tour of The Phillips Collection with Director Dr. Dorothy Kosinski
Yale-in-Washington is thrilled to Announce:
A Private Tour of the Phillips Collection with Director Dr. Dorothy Kosinski.
Dorothy Kosinski has been the director of The Phillips Collection since 2008. She is the former senior curator of painting and sculpture at the Dallas Museum of Art, and served earlier as an independent curator for the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, the Kunstmuseum Basel, and the Royal Academy of Arts in London.
Dr. Kosinski is energized and inspired by founder Duncan Phillips's vision for "an intimate museum combined with an experiment station." She says, "From the start, the Phillips has been a place of tremendous risk-taking with an innovative approach to thinking about art and culture. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to build on Duncan Phillips’s legacy as we work to renew and invigorate that spirit of open-minded, interdisciplinary, and collaborative inquiry into modern and contemporary art."
Dr. Kosinski has written and published widely in numerous catalogues and books, as well as many art magazines. She regularly participates in scholarly lectures and has extensive teaching experience at the university level. She received her MA and PhD degrees from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, and her BA from Yale University.
The Phillips Collection opened to the public in 1921 and is America's first museum of modern art. It is a private institution that is not a part of the federal government. Encounter superb works of modern art in an intimate setting at The Phillips Collection, an internationally recognized museum in Washington's vibrant Dupont Circle neighborhood.
Paintings by Renoir and Rothko, Bonnard and O'Keeffe, van Gogh and Diebenkorn are among the many stunning impressionist and modern works that fill the museum's distinctive building, which combines extensive new galleries with the family home of its founder, Duncan Phillips. The collection continues to develop with selective new acquisitions, many by contemporary artists.
