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.
