- $12 for admission for two to Made in the USA (up to $24 value)
The Made in the USA exhibit honors nearly 120 artists that museum founder Duncan Phillips personally singled out as standard-bearers for American art in the 19th and 20th centuries. A version of the collection recently toured Italy, Spain, Japan, and portions of the United States. Newly expanded, the full exhibit encompasses works by abstract expressionists and other diverse innovators in American art.
The Phillips Collection
The Phillips Collection emerged from one man's passion for art. Duncan Phillips filled his 19th-century Georgian Revival house with artwork, and he invited others to come and look at his collection. In 1921, the home formally became a museum of modern art. Impressionist and modern works fill its walls, and the collection continues to grow to accommodate contemporary artists.
