CONSTITUTION CENTER

07.15.2013

Constituting Liberty: from the Decleration to the Bill of Rights / The National Constitution Center is proud to display one of the 12 surviving copies of the Bill of Rights. The Museum of We the People is the first institution in Pennsylvania to exhibit this historic document to the general public. It has been preserved as part of The New York Public Library’s renowned research collection for over 100 years.

The Bill of Rights is displayed alongside a first edition Stone Engraving of the Declaration of Independence and a rare copy of the first public printing of the U.S. Constitution in the brand new George H.W. Bush Gallery.

As part of this exhibit, 10 local artists were asked to create artwork based on the Bill of Rights that would be displayed at the exhibit's entrance.
