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:
