June 22, 2024
10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Museum of the American Revolution, 101 S 3rd St
Philidelphia, PA 19106 United States

On Saturday, June 22, the Museum will host a special musical performance by the Philadelphia Freedom Band and artist talks in conjunction with “Whiskey Rebellion,” a special installation by contemporary artist John Y. Wind on display in the second-floor Oneida Indian Nation Atrium throughout June.

Throughout the day, guests can meet Wind and dive deeper into the history and meaning of the installation, which transforms hand-painted, ceramic decanters of key figures from the American Revolution that were produced by the Jim Beam Distilling Company and their competitors from the 1960s-70s. Wind will lead a guided tour of “Whiskey Rebellion” at 11:15 a.m., before exploring his artistic process and inspiration at a pop-up discovery cart with objects and documents from 1­-3 p.m.

To kick off the day at 10 a.m., the Philadelphia Freedom Band marching band and color guard will hold a special Pride Month performance, free and open to the public, on the Museum’s outdoor plaza. The Philadelphia Freedom Band is a non-profit organization comprised of a wide variety of talented musicians, ranging from amateur to professional which comes together to perform throughout the greater Philadelphia area and provide visible, active support to the LGBTQ+ community. Members participate through ensembles, including concert band, marching band, and jazz ensemble.
