The Foggy Bottom West End Village is very pleased to announce

another private, guided tour for our Village members of a special exhibit, “Alma W. Thomas: Everything is Beautiful, at The Phillips Collection.


The Phillips notes that the exhibit “… provides a fresh perspective on the artist’s dynamic long life (1891-1978) and multifaceted career that was defined by constant creativity. This major retrospective traces her journey from semi-rural Georgia to Washington, DC, to becoming the first Black woman given a solo show at the Whitney Museum of American Art at age 81. Through artworks and archival materials, this exhibition demonstrates how Thomas’s wide-reaching artistic practices extended far beyond her studio, shaping every facet of her life—from community service, to teaching, to gardening.”
