Mission Statement

The mission of The Phillips Collection is to protect, exhibit, enrich, and interpret its exceptional collection of works of art in the modernist tradition for the benefit of local, national, and international audiences. The permanent collection and related exhibitions provide the focus for extensive public programming designed to enhance public pleasure and understanding, as well as for art historical research. In accordance with the vision of its founder, Duncan Phillips, The Phillips Collection is devoted to the primacy of the experience of great works of art in an environment that is intimate in scale and intellectually stimulating. Through changing presentations of a collection known for its quality and unity, it fosters opportunities to explore and enjoy aesthetic correspondences among works of art from different periods and places.
