Exhibit Liberty Coming Soon

Join the Museum for the opening weekend of our newest special exhibition, Liberty: Don Troiani’s Paintings of the Revolutionary War, displaying the “artistry and accuracy” (New York Times) of nationally renowned historical artist Don Troiani's research-based paintings that capture the reality and drama of the war's crucial moments.

Liberty will plunge visitors into some of the most pivotal events of America’s fight for independence and reveal Troiani’s research-based artistic process. For the first time in a museum, this special exhibition will bring together over 40 of Troiani’s original Revolutionary War paintings and pair them with 40 artifacts from his personal collection, that of the Museum, and several private collectors. The exhibit will also unveil one of Troiani’s latest works, a painting of the young African American sailor and Philadelphian James Forten witnessing Black and Native American troops in the ranks of the Continental Army as they march past Independence Hall on their way to Yorktown, Virginia. The painting was commissioned in 2019 by the Museum with funding provided by the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail of the National Park Service.
