Yesterday, the Dallas Contemporary announced that Pop artist Richard Phillips will be joining its board of directors. The New York artist has much history with the city and the museum. Phillips, who may be best known by Texans as the “Playboy Marfa” guy, has participated in a number of fundraisers for the Dallas Contemporary and, last year, he presented his solo exhibition Richard Phillips: Negation of the Universe at the museum.
“We welcome Richard as a new board member during our growth in this important contemporary arts city,” said Executive Director Peter Doroshenko. “His insight as an artist and his international perspective will be very beneficial.”
