This year, in light of current events, the exhibition and auction are taking place online. For a virtual tour, click here, and to see the entire catalog of this year's masks, follow this link. As always, I'm amazed at the variety of artistic vision manifested in the masks. From poignant to whimsical, minimalist to ornately transformed, there is something for everyone. Click on the individual masks for more pictures and the artist's statments.
As you can imagine, museums everywhere are struggling with lengthy shut-downs due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Masks event is the museum's big annual fundraiser, and this year is more important than ever. Bidding is open until June 28. If you're so inclined, you have plenty of time to find that special mask and support a great cause.
I have never bid on a mask, but I'm going to this year. The tough part is deciding which one!
Stay safe and well, everyone!
