'To Future Women' at The Phillips Collection

January 17, 2018

From January 21 to February 14, The Phillips Collection is hosting To Future Women, an interactive artwork that marks the anniversary of the Women’s March through the platform of art.


Created by artist Georgia Saxelby, the project invites participants throughout America and beyond to write a letter to women in 20 years. Part art and part history, these letters will be archived for 20 years by The Phillips Collection and re-exhibited on January 21, 2037, historicizing one of the largest protests in American history while creating a time capsule for the next generation of women.


The project will launch at The Phillips Collection and will travel to different cultural institutions and public spaces in Washington, DC, over the following six months. 


Participants who cannot visit the museum may mail letters to:

DC's New Recycling Rules

January 7, 2018

After you take away the Christmas tree, it's time to focus on DC Department of Public Works' new recycling requirement with its expanded list of items, effective January 1, 2018.  All part of a citywide goal of getting 80 percent of waste out of landfills.


The new list of recyclables is now the same for both residential and commercial properties, and includes these newly eligible items:


Pizza boxes

Paper and plastic plates, cups, lids and takeout containers

Plastic produce, deli/bakery containers and trays

Residents should continue to loosely place recyclable items in the blue bins without plastic bags.

Plastic bags, wrap and film are still not recyclable through DPW’s system, but residents can find a dropoff location to recycle those items.
