Faith, Hope and Charity by Marianne Lisson Kuhn
The mural includes the names of 12 famous American masons on one side, and 12 well-known Naperville masons on the other including city founder Joe Naper. Two large portraits dominate the mural -- on one side stands George Washington, one of 14 U.S Presidents who were Masons, and on the other side, Joe Naper. An 18" border painted to simulate wood and rope shows how masons are tied together around the world.

Title: Faith, Hope and Charity

Artist: Marianne Lisson Kuhn

Location: Outside of Russell's Dry Cleaners on Main Street downtown

Medium: Mural

Creation Date: 2011

Installation Date: 2011

Installation Story: The mural was unveiled as Freemasons from Euclid Lodge No. 65 revealed a few of their secrets to the public. Guests at the ceremony included Medinah Shriners and representatives of the Grand Chapter of Illinois and the Illinois Grand Council of Cryptic Masons. After the ceremony the public were invited to tour the lodge, which is above Naperville Running Company on West Jefferson Avenue.

Description: The mural includes the names of 12 famous American masons on one side, and 12 well-known Naperville masons on the other including city founder Joe Naper. Two large portraits dominate the mural -- on one side stands George Washington, one of 14 U.S Presidents who were Masons, and on the other side, Joe Naper. An 18" border painted to simulate wood and rope shows how masons are tied together around the world.

History Behind Art: Freemasons have been in Naperville since 1848. The mural is the brainchild of Neville Diamond, this year’s Worshipful Master of Euclid Lodge. The Freemasons are significant benefactors of Loaves and Fishes Community Pantry and also helps many other local charities including Shriners’ Hospital, DuPage PADS, Chicago Honor Flight and Bridge Communities.
