Week 1 Phillips Collection

Hey it’s Charlie and I’ve finished over a full week at the Phillips Collection! I’m doing a bunch of different stuff and I love it so far. I’ve been primarily splitting my time between Music, Public Programs, Exhibitions. I’ve found sitting in on meetings where many different parts of the museum intersect has been illuminating for my understanding of how a museum operates. I have so much to learn but I feel like I already have a clearer idea of what curation looks like in practice. I’m most excited to continue researching works in an upcoming exhibition of Nordic paintings to make blurbs for the show’s placards.

Everyone in the office is super nice and they’re all really good at their jobs. It’s great!
