The Phillips Museum of Art at Franklin & Marshall College is Lancaster County’s largest fine arts museum with a permanent collection of over 8,000 works of art that include contemporary, historical, and multicultural materials. The museum is a thriving teaching museum, a hub for the vibrant cultural life of the region, and is committed to fostering community partnerships. As part of its mission, the Phillips Museum of Art provides engaging programming and exhibitions that are free and open to all. Currently closed for the summer, the museum will reopen on August 27, 2019 with new and exciting exhibitions.

As part of the Fall 2019 season, the Phillips Museum of Art will welcome exhibitions that celebrate the 50th anniversary of co-education at F&M, the educators who encourage and support artistic endeavors at the college, and the talent of regional craftswomen from the 19th through the 20th centuries. FRESH! The F&M Art & Art History Department Biennial presents new art from F&M faculty, staff, and emeriti in a wide range of media including drawing, painting, print, sculpture, photography, and site-specific installation. For the exhibition 50 Years: A Celebration of F&M’s Alumnae Artists, the Phillips Museum of Art has chosen two alumnae artists from each decade since F&M became a co-ed institution. These artists’ work showcases a wealth of perspectives and purpose ranging from every day use to political activism and social awareness. The third new exhibition of the season, Stitched Stories: Women’s Narratives in Regional Textiles, reexamines textiles from the permanent collection and reveals how women documented their lives, were agents of social change, and built community through their handicraft.

For more information about these exhibitions and the museum’s upcoming programs, please visit our website.
