Highlights of the five soirees — which conclude Sept. 1 -- include a tutorial on yoga you can do in your chair with Kimberly Wilson of Tranquil Space (Aug. 4), a dance performance by Step Afrika, which responds to Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series (Aug. 18) and a visit from some food truck favorites, including the Red Hook Lobster Truck (Aug. 25).

This year, the Phillips is holding a photo competition and awarding free After 5 admission (normally $12) and two drink tickets to one winner a week. All you have to do is check out Frank Stella’s “K.43,” which is currently on view at the museum, and then take a picture of something that reminds you of the sculpture. For details on how to enter the contest, visit the Phillips Collection’s Experiment Station blog.
