Professor Justin McDaniel will lead the 2020 Integrated Studies Program class and members of the Penn community on a tour of the Philadelphia Masonic Temple on Thursday, November 17th. We will be departing promptly at 10:30am from in front of ARCH and taking SEPTA to the Masonic Temple at One North Broad St., Philadelphia, PA 19107-2598. The following is a description from the Temple website: "The Masonic Temple in Philadelphia was constructed in 1873. It has been called one of the great “wonders” of the Masonic world. Adorned with some of the finest artifacts of Freemasonry and magnificent lodge rooms based on themes of the ancient architectural world, the Masonic Temple connects us with our past by outwardly displaying our Masonic traditions and values." The ISP theme this semester is "Body, Image, Spirit" and we have been investigating how different institutions influence the formation of identity. We look forward to seeing the magnificent art and architecture on display at the Philadelphia Masonic Temple. The tour will end by Noon.
