Exhibition Description: Initiation ceremonies have been a part of organized groups through all of history. How have they evolved from their roles in ancient religions to the present day initiations of sororities and fraternities, modern religions, and non-religious entities. Initiation rites mark the end of one chapter of a person’s life and the beginning of the next. They facilitate the understanding of one’s self and memorialize a specific moment. Initiations create a sense of camaraderie between those who have gone through the initiation together. What does initiation look like now and throughout history?
