Things to Do: Phillips After 5

So I've been planning on going to a Phillips After 5 event for over a year now. Recently, I came across a posting about it on Yelp! and decided I'd share it with others, in the event that you've never heard about it. I'm hoping to make an appearance there soon.

Phillips After 5 is a cultural event comprised of art, music, food and libations (cash bar) and is held the first Thursday of every month from 5:30-8:00PM at The Phillips Collection, a small, modern art museum located in Dupont Circle.

Schedule for July 7th
Staged Reading of Six Degrees of Separation (6:30PM)
In John Guare's award-winning play, a con artist wins his way into the home of New York art dealers and dines in the shadow of their two-sided painting by Wassily Kandinsky. Alan Paul, associate director of the Shakespeare Theatre Company, directs.

Gallery Talk (6:00PM & 7:00PM)
Kandinsky's Experimental Process: Creating at least 15 preparatory studies for Painting with White Border, Kandinsky experimented with orientation and composition while moving freely among media such as pen, watercolor, and oil.

Tasting (5:00 - 8:30PM)
Sample a variety of beer paired with Top Chef DC Carla Hall's cookies!

Admission: $12; free for members. Cash bar.
RSVPs are required:

The Phillips Collection
