William Merritt Chase, a renowned figure in the international art circles of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, was a brilliant observer of contemporary life, an innovative painter, and an influential teacher. On the centennial of his death, this retrospective—the first in over three decades—explores the interrelationships in Chase’s work across subject and media.

Seeing Nature Landscape Masterworks from the Paul G. Allen Family Collection
Featuring 39 masterpieces spanning five centuries, this exhibition draws from the Paul G. Allen Family Collection to explore the evolution of European and American landscape art.
Throughout the 2016–2017 school year, all 420 students at Inspired Teaching School participated in the Art Links: Museum-in-Residence program, connecting works of art in the museum’s collection to classroom themes.
In fall 2016, the Phillips collaborated with a local best practice educators who used Prism.K12 methodology to develop and implement art-integrated lessons inspired by Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series.
For more than 25 years, The Phillips Collection has held a staff show to feature the works of artists employed at the museum. In 1984, the staff show was endowed by the family of James McLaughlin, an accomplished still-life painter who worked at the museum for 50 years.
