About the Ebook
For Pride 2017, the National Liberty Museum presents the nation’s first museum exhibit of studio glass works produced exclusively by artists in the LGBTQ+ community. We are very excited to present this celebration of identity and freedom at the National Liberty Museum, as we showcase the diverse subjects, methods, and styles explored by glass artists in the LGBTQ+ community.
The works featured were chosen by the artists themselves, in keeping with the spirit of self-advocacy and creative self-expression. Transparency strives to emphasize the importance of being transparent and honest about identity, a hallmark of liberty and creative freedom.
Located in the heart of historic Philadelphia, the National Liberty Museum is dedicated to preserving America’s heritage of freedom by encouraging people to find their own place in the story of liberty. Visitors to the Museum enjoy an inspiring and entertaining experience, as they interact with incredible stories of heroes and a collection of contemporary art. Our core themes for young people and adults include leadership and good character; diversity and inclusion; peaceful conflict resolution; and civic engagement. Our primary art form is glass art, as it makes the point that freedom is as fragile as glass.
