Masks Benefit at the Museum of Art Fort Collins
The annual Masks exhibition is a crowd favorite that over the years has raised more than $1.8 million dollars to support the museum’s mission. During that time, Masks artists, most of whom live in Northern Colorado, have designed and donated more than 3,000 masks. Each year brings new perspectives as the unadorned ceramic forms leave the museum and return as a creative collection of unique masks. Professional artists, whose creativity is their economic mainstay, and recreational artists, who respond to their need to express their creativeness with ingenious styles and materials all create over 220 Masks to support the museum and its programming.
December 2021 – My mask for this year! “Whoa, this is the Fort Collins Museum of Art!, what in the world am I doing in here?” He is spooked because he is going to be in a museum. Like a china shop!
