Replica Justice Bell

The Replica Justice Bell in residence at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Museum

On August 26th, our Justice Bell replica made its official debut in a celebration and artists reception at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Museum in the Historic Landmark Building in Philadelphia where It had been in exhibition from August 12 to 25.

Our replica Justice Bell was made at the historic Traction Company in Philadelphia by sculptors Erin Addie and Gary Pergolini, alumni of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA). Rob Roesch, world-renowned sculptor and Chair of the Sculpture Department at PAFA, oversaw the project. Although lightweight and made of a resin material, it looks like the real bell and is the same size. See measurement details below.

 

Our Replica Justice Bell is going on tour in 2020!

The replica Justice Bell will visit schools, museums, and organizations in 2020, and will also accompany some of our film screenings for "Finding Justice: The Untold Story of Women's Fight for the Vote."
