From the website: “The Phillips Museum of Art at Franklin & Marshall College is a major cultural resource for the College and the community. The collections and exhibits reflect the College’s aspiration toward excellence in the arts, mindful that such a reflection is essential to the success of any liberal arts college. The museum presents visiting artists’ exhibitions, curated, traveling and rotating exhibits from the College’s extensive permanent collection. It also provides opportunities for research and study, as well as less-formal learning experiences for students, faculty and the Lancaster community. The museum is located in the Steinman College Center, designed by internationally reknowned architect Minoru Yamasaki, most famous for his design of the World Trade Center in New York City. Situated between the Ann and Richard Barshinger Center for the Musical Arts in Hensel Hall and the Roschel Center for the Performing Arts, the Phillips Museum is a key piece of F&M’s arts quad. The museum houses the Dana Gallery on the first floor and the Leonard and Mildred Rothman Gallery on the ground floor, together with the Sally Mather Gibson Curriculum Gallery on the bottom level. The Phillips Museum and all of the galleries are environmentally controlled for the preservation and display of art, while the Curriculum Gallery provides additional spaces for art instruction.”
