From Michael Brumback, PGM, Chairman, Library & Museum Board:
The Grand Lodge Library & Museum in Indiana Freemasons’ Hall is on track to open for Founder’s Day 2012. As of Thanksgiving week, dramatic lighting has been installed, the room is being painted to highlight exhibits, and the floors are being refinished. Our IUPUI Interns have completed the design phase of the project, and are entering the execution phase of building the exhibits. The 5th floor foyer is being updated, furniture is being reupholstered, and the new entrance will feature museum exhibits. Fourteen new display cases will be delivered in December, and all artifacts for the first displays have been catalogued and photographed, while future exhibit artifacts have been stored in compliance with archival standards. Many of our historic pictures have been digitized to be displayed on a touchscreen LCD monitor, along with numerous other artifacts for future virtual exhibits.
