The Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library (SRMML) reopens on July 19, 2021 and will present a new exhibition entitled “What’s in a Portrait?”  A portrait is someone’s likeness captured in paint, ink, or in a photograph, but it is also much more. Portraits serve many purposes: they function as personal and family mementos, document accomplishments, or show the owner’s admiration of a celebrated figure.

“What’s in a Portrait?” is a selection of works from the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library that help tell the story of the many people who participated and shaped Masonic and fraternal organizations in the United States for over two hundred years. The show is on view through July 21, 2022.

Special Needs Arts Programs, Inc., (SNAP) has installed a beautiful new exhibit called Picassome.

Created by our Special Artists, they made a Picasso portrait of themselves.

Picasso was a great artist who lived in 20 century (1881- 1973). He presented his artwork through many styles and some are Cubism, Surrealism and Expressionism. He used variety of colors to express his subjects. His colors are exciting and vibrant especially in Cubism style where he was focused on using geometrical shapes, shapes edges, to represent his amazing ideas.

 These portraits are a reflection on Cubism period.

Tom Sileo's book "Historical Guide to Open Space in Lexington" is an enthusiastic case study of "outdoor museums": the areas of our natural landscape that have fascinating stories to tell, even if they don't come prepared with exhibit labels. Exploring town conservation land yields not only information about local plant and animal life, but also about the changing physical and cultural landscapes of Lexington, as land is bought, sold, farmed, divided, and preserved for future generations.

Join Tom as he leads a guided walk through the Great Meadow, one of East Lexington's most beautiful pieces of open space, and shares how reading the landscape and historical record combined can teach us about the story of our town.

Raku Workshop with Mike Roche at Munroe Center for the Arts


Adults
Tuesday, October 12 5:30pm - 8:30pm
Saturday October 23 10:00am - 4:00pm
Instructor - Mike Roche

​Join Mike for a two-part ceramics workshop celebrating the art of Raku. Derived from a traditional Japanese firing process, this American adaptation creates wild and beautiful surfaces within a matter of hours. Participants will spend one evening making work and learning about the history and practice and an afternoon glazing and firing the wares. As per the process, we will fire the clayworks up to 1800 degrees fahrenheit and quickly remove them from the kiln. They will then be placed in a post-reduction chamber where we will surround them with organic combustibles which will burn and leave their distinct mark on the clay and glaze. Every piece yields unpredictable and unique results only to be obtained through this particular firing process. Be ready to experiment and push the boundaries on what you thought was possible in clay.

Please try it out: take a few sample photos and have your phone enabled for cellular data. The usefulness of iNaturalist depends on taking good photos.

Theatre Leadership Presence and Storytelling Workshop
Adults
Thursday 6:00 - 9:00pm
October 21, 2021
Instructor - Rob Salafia

Leadership Presence is how we show up in the context of our role and environment within which we operate. It is best characterized as creating an environment where people and ideas thrive. Leadership storytelling is a method of communicating a complex idea in a clear and powerful way. Stories create an indelible message and are a container for sharing one’s values and important life lessons. 

In this 3-hour session you will be introduced to skills for building an engaging and powerful presence. We will introduce the why, how, and what of leadership storytelling. You will learn the structure of a great story, as well as what it takes to “be” a storyteller. In addition, we will introduce several narrative frameworks that can be used in a variety of presentation situations.
