The implementation of exhibitions featuring American artists David Driskell and Alma Thomas.

NEH funds will support an interdepartmental project team responsible for the preparations, installations, and public programs related to the museum’s 100th anniversary exhibitions featuring renowned American artists David Driskell (1931–2020) and Alma Thomas (1891–1979). Both artists have deep ties to The Phillips Collection and our Washington, DC community, as well as with Howard University with whom we will partner on programming. “David Driskell: Icons of Nature and History” features approximately 60 works, and will be on view at the Phillips October 16, 2021–January 9, 2022. “Alma W. Thomas: Everything Is Beautiful” features over 170 objects and will be on view at the Phillips October 30, 2021–January 23, 2022. Humanities-based scholarship on the life and work of each artist will be presented in the exhibitions, and accessible to broad audiences through public programs on site and online.
