FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MASONIC GRAND LODGE OF
KING HIRAM'S APRON
By Ari Roussimoff
Starting March 12th, 2013, the Masonic
Grand Lodge of
Freemasonry has a very rich history and tradition and members have included such luminaries as President George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Theodore Roosevelt, Mozart, Franz Liszt, Kaiser Wilhelm I, Oscar Wilde, Mark Twain, Rudyard Kipling, Voltaire, Garibaldi, Casanova, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Harry Houdini, Oliver Hardy, Ernest Borgnine, Roy Rogers, Harold Lloyd and John Wayne. It was this rich legacy combined with highly moral philosophies and culture that influenced Mr. Roussimoff to join the Masonic fraternity, and the fact that the legendary magician Houdini attended lodge meetings in this very building inspired the artist to want to show his paintings in this most untraditional venue.
Ari Roussimoff is a prolific painter as well as a director of films. His paintings of Russian, Ukrainian and Jewish themes have earned him much acclaim and they have been shown in over 80 exhibitions worldwide, including at the Nakhamkin Fine Arts Galleries, M.L. International Gallery of Fine Arts, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, A & J Galleries, The Bucharest Rumania Museum, The Nicholas Roerich Museum, Chancellor Robert R. Livingston Masonic Library and Museum, and many others. Among the many who have lauded Ari Roussimoff's paintings were the modern masters Marc Chagall and Oskar Kokoschka. A multi-media artist, Mr. Roussimoff has directed several movies, among them the critically acclaimed documentary on the changing history of the perception of physical human anomalies, “Freaks Uncensored! A Human Sideshow”.
Roussimoff paintings can also be seen displayed in the building’s library and museum on the 14th Floor (The Chancellor Robert R. Livingston Masonic Library of Grand Lodge.).
