Antiques in the Lodge: The Folk Art of American Fraternal Societies

Sat, Nov 18th

11:00am - 12:00pm

 

Join us for a unique presentation on antiques and folk art once used by American Fraternal Societies (Odd Fellows, Freemasons, Elks, etc.). The focus will be on the significant role played by these Societies in the United States during the 1800’s and early 1900’s, not only in fostering moral values and providing opportunities for their members to socialize, but also as providers of medical care and a retirement safety net for their membership.   To illustrate the talk, real objects used in lodge meeting halls and in public parades will be shared from the personal collection of Greg Hoffman, a local antique aficionado. 

 

Register: 480-488-2286.

 

Judith: Changing Views of a Jewish Hero

Thu, Nov 30th

10:30am - 11:30am

 

We will look at paintings, sculptures and other depictions of the Orthodox Christian Old Testament story of Judith and Holofernes, from the 1100s to the present time, to see how different the same story can be in the hands of different artists. Sometimes the differences are due to changing styles through art history and sometimes they are due to changing views of women. Presented by Lisa Spahr, docent of The Phoenix Art Museum
