Dr. R. Scott Stephenson with artist Don Troiani at the Liberty Exhibit Opening

Join us for a special evening with Don Troiani, the nationally renowned historical artist whose masterful blend of “artistry and accuracy” (New York Times) is on view in the Museum’s current special exhibition Liberty: Don Troiani’s Paintings of the Revolutionary War. Guests can tour the special exhibit and then enjoy a conversation with Troiani and Dr. R. Scott Stephenson, Museum President and CEO, from 6-7 p.m. Troiani will reflect on his career, artistic influences, and his unique process to research and paint the Revolutionary War, followed by a question-and-answer session with the onsite and online audiences. All registrants will receive first access to this event’s recording to watch again. 

The first major exhibition of Troiani’s original artwork, Liberty plunges visitors into some of the most pivotal events of America’s fight for independence and reveals Troiani’s research-based artistic process. This special exhibition brings together for the first time in public more than 45 of Troiani’s original Revolutionary War paintings and pairs them with historical artifacts to illuminate the story in each scene.
