Glass Art

Glass art is the primary art form at the National Liberty Museum, as it makes the point that freedom is “fragile,” like glass.  We invite you to play this video for a firsthand account of the connection between glass art and liberty from an artist who escaped communism.

The National Liberty Museum’s mission of supporting glass art positions our institution as a unique venue to celebrate and discuss issues relevant to the international glass community. Our use of glass art in connection with liberty makes this a favorite venue among glass collectors and artists alike.  We are also an inspiration for new collectors who discover this art form while visiting the Museum.

The display of glass art plays an integral role in the Museum’s educational mission. Glass is the prism through which we converse with visitors about the fragility of freedom and the role we each play in safeguarding it. The Museum is aptly located on Philadelphia’s Liberty Trail, just two blocks from Independence Hall.
