We extend our sincere thanks to everyone who joined us for our annual Glass Auction on Saturday, October 6 at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown.  Our generous sponsors, donors, artists, and guests helped make this event one of our most successful Glass Auctions ever!  100% of the proceeds will support the Museum’s education and outreach programs for kids. This will enable the Museum to serve schools and communities throughout our region with character and civics education programs that teach young people leadership, empathy, personal responsibility and respect for diversity.

Please enjoy these photos of this wonderful evening.

This collection of works is Amato's interpretation of modern and historic figures who rose like “superheroes” to accept seemingly impossible challenges of liberty. Shown here are cast glass sculptures of Harriet Tubman and Eleanor Roosevelt.
