Nestled in the heart of Franklin & Marshall’s campus is the Phillips Museum of Art, a “Hidden Gem” of Lancaster County. Inside visitors will find exhibitions that include highlights from the museum’s extensive permanent collection and that feature diverse, contemporary artists. 

As part of the Spring 2019 season, the Phillips Museum of Art will welcome exhibitions that underscore timely current events. Hostile Terrain presents found objects, photographs, and data that sheds light on migration across the border from Mexico to the United States. The museum will also investigate art-making practices and celebrate a momentous anniversary. Geometric Aljamia: a Cultural Transliteration, will explore notions of hybridity between Middle Eastern and Western art-making practices through sacred geometry. The Phillips will also celebrate humanity’s achievements in space, with a focus on the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing, in the exhibition Looking Skyward.

In addition to these new exhibitions, the Phillips Museum of Art will offer several events that are free and open to everyone. For more information about these and other programs that the museum offers, please visit our website.
