During Father’s Day Weekend at the Museum, visitors can explore displays of military miniatures and scenes from the Revolutionary era created by approximately 50 painters and sculptors, as well as have conversations with the artists about how and why they were created. The weekend display in the Museum’s Liberty Hall will introduce the public to the art of military miniatures, a craft that draws on history, art, and research. For those interested in creating their own military miniatures, vendors will be selling supplies, paints, and unpainted kits. All proceeds will be donated from the Artist Preservation Group to the Museum in support of the acquisition of a historic sword.

The weekend display coincides with the Museum’s current special exhibition, Liberty: Don Troiani’s Paintings of the Revolutionary War, which is included with regular Museum admission. For the first time in a museum, this special exhibition brings together over 45 of nationally renowned historical artist Don Troiani’s original Revolutionary War paintings and pairs them with 40 artifacts that illuminate the story in each scene. A selection of miniatures and prints based on Troiani’s paintings are available in the Museum Shop, along with a hard cover catalog.
