The Phillips Collection Extends Hours for Final Two Weekends of Georgia O’Keeffe: Abstraction

Due to the extraordinary visitor response to Georgia O’Keeffe: Abstraction, The Phillips Collection will extend its hours for the final two weekends of the exhibition.

On May 1 - 2 and May 8 - 9 the exhibition will be open to visitors from 10 am to 10 pm. O’Keeffe’s bold representations of flowers, bones, and landscapes are icons of 20th-century art; she was also a pioneer in abstract painting. The exhibition of over 100 works reveals this achievement, from her groundbreaking charcoals of 1915, to her close-up views of flowers and bones, to her spare watercolors of the 1970s. It also includes examples of Alfred Stieglitz’s famous photographic portrait series of O’Keeffe.

May 1 and May 2: 10 am – 10 pm
May 8 and May 9: 10 am – 10 pm

The Phillips Collection, 1600 21st St., N.W. Metro: Dupont Circle (Q St.)

Admission to Georgia O’Keeffe: Abstraction is $12 for adults and $10 for
students and for visitors 62 and over.
