Enigmatic, evocative, and often simply strange, the iconic art and objects showcased in Mystery and Benevolence: Masonic and Odd Fellows Folk Art from the Kendra and Allan Daniel Collection relate the beauty of fraternal teachings through a potent combination of highly charged imagery, esoteric forms, and symbolic meaning. The exhibition and fully illustrated publication explore the fascinating visual landscape of fraternal culture through almost two hundred works of art from the late eighteenth through the mid-twentieth centuries, comprising a major gift to the museum from Kendra and Allan Daniel.
