Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity
Sigma Alpha Epsilon
Evanston, Illinois

In 2013, tellermadsen was asked to create a new museum for the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, one of the oldest and largest fraternities in America. Located in the Levere Memorial Temple, the fraternity's national headquarters across from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, the exhibit echoes the values and mission of the fraternity. It is divided into sections exploring the Founders; Leadership; Service (especially during wartime); the Temple; The SAE Foundation; Friendship; Character; Collection highlights; the SAE experience. Artifacts range from Pres. McKinley's cane to Rudy Vallee's saxophone (both members.) The museum also features 12 stained glass windows designed by Tiffany for the fraternity. tellermadsen developed the concepts, and working with museum staff, selected appropriate artifacts to tell an engaging story.

Exhibit is ongoing.
