June 11, 2022 – An Introduction to Symbolism

This is a revision of the initial course offered by the Maine Masonic College. Symbolism is a critical element in experiencing Freemasonry. We will observe and discuss how symbolism is also an integral part in everyone’s life. Lack of an understanding of the levels of symbols and their interpretation, have severe repercussions for us all. This interactive presentation is open to all audiences and ages.

February 26, 2022 – Picturing Maine’s Indigenous Context: Colonialism and the Penobscot River, Nation and People

Join the Maine Masonic College as we welcome our first Guest Lecturer of 2022 – Liam Riordan

This illustrated lecture uses four works of art (created by Alvan Fisher in 1835, Fitz Henry Lane in 1856, John Martin in 1865, and James Eric Francis, Sr., in 2020) to reconsider how we understand the lower Penobscot River from modern-day Bangor to Castine. Contemporary Indigenous vitality has profound implications for how we understand colonialism and this region in the past, present, and future.
