The Art of Face Masks


The Art of Face Masks

a virtual exhibit


The face mask has become a symbol of our times, an emblem to illustrate the COVID-19 contagion. It is also a signal of caring and a gesture of community amidst the upheaval of our daily life. When history looks back on the pandemic of 2020, these rectangles that hide the mouth and nose will be what we see.

This virtual exhibition reunites a creative group of artists that participated in “The Art of Dress” exhibition in 2019.  Now these artists tackle the role of the face mask as a form of art and self-expression. Hand-dyed fabrics, various styles, a range of techniques, and conceptual thinking are employed in these one-of-a-kind functional objects.
