    Located in the Museum’s Liberty Hall, the exhibition highlights the life of the Museum’s founder Irvin J. Borowsky and how his belief in universal equality and liberty, as well as his passion for contemporary glass art, led to the creation of this one-of-a-kind institution more than 20 years ago.

    Mr. Borowsky believed that liberty, like glass, is both fragile and strong, and must be nurtured and protected. This central idea is represented throughout the Museum by thought-provoking glass art, along with stories of heroes, past and present, who have made great sacrifices to safeguard liberty.

    Strength & Fragility pays homage to the life of Mr. Borowsky and the ideals of the National Liberty Museum that encourage visitors to take meaningful action to advance the cause of liberty. The exhibition features archival material, artwork, and soundscapes, as well as the centerpiece titled, The Peace Portal -- a magnificent 9-foot-high glass canopy by Ulla Darni - which has not been available for viewing since 2015. A custom sound bath is now incorporated into this sculpture to give visitors a chance to reflect on the National Liberty Museum’s founding principles, which remain intact to this very day
