Opens on October 16, 2021
New Special Exhibition Coming Soon
The Museum's upcoming special exhibition, Liberty: Don Troiani’s Paintings of the Revolutionary War, will immerse visitors in the dramatic and research-based works of nationally renowned historical artist Don Troiani to bring the compelling stories about the diverse people and complex events of the American Revolution to life. The exhibit will also unveil Troiani’s latest canvas, 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.
Recently Unveiled: "Brave Men as Ever Fought" Painting
Historical artist Don Troiani's latest work was unveiled in September 2021 in a ceremony at the African American Museum in Philadelphia.
"Brave Men as Ever Fought"
Troiani's painting, commissioned by the Museum, features a scene depicting a young James Forten witnessing Black and Native American troops marching past the Pennsylvania State House (now known as Independence Hall) in Philadelphia on Sept. 2, 1781.
