Join Vradenburg Director and CEO Dr. Jonathan P. Binstock and Chairman Emeritus Dani Levinas for a conversation about Levinas’s new book, The Guardians of Art: Conversations with Major Collectors.

In The Guardians of Art, DC-based collector Dani Levinas brings together 34 of the most outstanding names in contemporary art collecting, embracing a diverse range of characters who talk with him about the motivations behind their drive to collect and about their ways of sharing their passion for art with the wider public.

In his conversations with the Rubells, Dakis Joannou, Martin Z. Margulies, and many others, Levinas, himself a major collector who has served on the boards of The Phillips Collection, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and the Reina Sofía, emerges as a brilliant interlocutor and an authoritative collector of collectors.

The Phillips Collection is located at 1600 21st Street NW.
