Initiated Eye Paintings at National Heritage Museum Thru 2011


Artist Peter Waddell's 21 painting exhibition, The Initiated Eye, comes to the Scottish Rite Northern Masonic Jurisdiction's National Heritage Museum in Lexington, Massachusetts. The exhibit runs December 19th through January 9th, 2011. The paintings were commissioned by the Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia, and have traveled the country. I was lucky enough to see them in San Francisco two years ago.

The paintings are based on the history and architecture of Washington, D.C., and the role that Freemasons had in the design and construction of the city. They feature famous Masons and Masonic landmarks in the nation's capitol. In Lexington, they will be accompanied by forty artifacts that will compliment them and help to illustrate the story of Freemasons in Washington D.C.

Thanks for mentioning the exhibition on your blog. Just wanted to let people know that "The Initiated Eye" is on view at the National Heritage Museum in Lexington, MA through January 9, 2011, so there is an entire year to plan a visit!
