The focus of the usual “After 5” event at the Phillips Collection on April 7 has shifted to concern about Japan.


Curators at the Phillips decided to mount a special installation of Kenzo Okada’s “Footsteps.” Gallery talks during the evening were originally scheduled to discuss all the work of Pierre Bonnard but now will emphasis his work that was influenced by Japanese art.

The admission to the event, held from 5 to 8:30 p.m., is $12 and frequently attracts 750 visitors and often sells out, according to Phillips officials.
