Take Metro's red line from the hotel to the Dupont Circle neighborhood for DC's most intimate home for modern and contemporary art, The Phillips Collection. Opened to the public in 1921 and partially housed in the founder's family brownstone, the Phillips is home to beloved works such as Renoir's The Luncheon of the Boating Party, the Rothko room (designed to Rothko's specifications), and the Laib Wax Room. The current and extensive exhibition, Made in the USA, features more than 200 works by over 120 artists and will occupy nearly two-thirds of the museum’s galleries. Artists include Milton Avery, Stuart Davis, Richard Diebenkorn, Arthur Dove, Edward Hopper, Jacob Lawrence, John Marin, Robert Motherwell, Georgia O’Keeffe, Mark Rothko, John Sloan, Clyfford Still, and many others. After a tour of the exhibition, the group will have time to see other works in the permanent collection or visit the gift shop.
