The Phillips Collection announces the launch of its blog The Experiment Station.

From Cataloguing & Technical Services Librarian Sarah Osborne Bender:

Duncan Phillips wrote of his museum in 1926: “This is the record of the youth of an idea, the concept of a small, intimate museum combined with an experiment station — and it represents the first stage in our progress towards the realization of an ideal.”

In the many voices of The Phillips Collection employees, volunteers, and interns, The Experiment Station will bring you behind the scenes in conservation, interviews with artists on staff, flashbacks with archival images and letters, notes from the music program, thoughts on the creative process, and much more. Welcome to our blog!
