‘Manhattan displays of Masonic material culture’

Eve M. Kahn’s antiques column in today’s New York Times discusses “Art from Fraternal Societies” (wasting no space before plugging Aimee Newell’s recent book), and reveals how two art venues in New York City will feature Masonic and other fraternal material culture in January.

From January 20 through May 8, 2016, Masonic and Odd Fellows pieces—gifts from collectors Allan and Kendra Daniel—will be shown at American Folk Art Museum.

Bruce Lee Webb, author of As Above, So Below: Art of the American Fraternal Society, 1850-1930, will bring certain pieces to sell at Outsider Art Fair, January 21-24 at Metropolitan Pavilion, just around the corner from Masonic Hall.
