The process of redesigning the Museum of the American Revolution is finally over after months of controversy, for the Philadelphia Art Commission gave the museum’s architectural plans its final approval Wednesday.

“We’re very pleased. We had a very short and enthusiastic meeting with the Art Commission,” said ZeeAnn Mason, spokesperson for the Museum of the American Revolution. “We’re thrilled and ready to continue with the permitting processes.”

The final approval comes two months after architects were asked to make changes to its design. At the commission’s request, the museum replaced a cupola with a light monitor placed lower on the building, reworked the entrance on Third street, added a window to the façade of the Chestnut Street entrance, and will have two bas-relief paintings on the exterior of the building. Read more about this story on PBJ.com.
