Public Programs


As communities around the world grapple with the COVID-19 outbreak, the Addison Gallery of American Art and Phillips Academy are continually monitoring the status of the virus with the health and well-being of our community in mind. Following the recommendations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we have made the decision to cancel and/or postpone all museum events through August 31.

​In the meantime, we are offering virtual gallery talks on Zoom. ​The programs are free, but space is limited; be sure to sign up below to reserve your spot! ​​

Man Up! Visualizing Masculinity in 19th-Century America​ with Curator Gordon Wilkins
Using the virtual tour of the Addison produced before the museum's closure, Gordon Wilkins, Robert M. Walker Associate Curator of American Art, will lead participants via Zoom through the exhibition and discuss these works from the collection that reflect the constant redefinition of masculinity in American society during ​the 19th and early 20th centuries. This tour will be recorded and the video posted online shortly afterwards. Reserve your spot​.
