A sneak peek of the venue spaces at the Museum of the American Revolution, which will open on April 19, was celebrated on Jan. 19 in Philadelphia. The invite-only event was held for industry insiders to showcase the new museum’s offerings for events and meetings, which includes four main event spaces: Rotunda, Patriots Gallery, Liberty Hall and Founder’s Board Room. 

INSPIRATION

The texture of the Norman Arch leading into the historic Masonic Temple in Philadelphia inspired this clean, midcentury modern table.

DETAILS

This summer table fit for a special event, such as a chairman’s dinner, features a mix of midcentury design with modern elements. Carolyn Rizzo, head designer of Garnish, says this technique is easily accomplished in décor but challenging to pull off in event design.

This museum promises to share a story that is not quite the one we learned in school. George Washington does indeed make an appearance—you can see the tent that he used as his headquarters in an interactive exhibit—but Museum of the American Revolution promises to tell a tale that is lesser known. From the first shots of the Revolutionary War to the formation of the United States, its mission is to tell the story of everyone from slaves and Native Americans to women who took up arms to fight for the cause.
