Calling all artists, crafters, and costume enthusiasts! Join us on August 16 & 17 at the Windup Space for a mask-making happy hour in benefit of Maryland Art Place!
Maryland Art Place will host a two-part mask-making workshop in tandem with MAP's upcoming benefit exhibition, Altered Realities. This workshop will be led by local artists Emily Schubert and Naomi Davidoff, and will explore mask making using paper mache, recycled and repurposed materials. The workshop is free to attend. Drinks will be on happy hour special at the bar! Attendees must be age 21 and over.
Masks have been created historically for ritual, performance, protection and disguise. Artists are encouraged to use inspiration from historical and contemporary influences while designing their mask. Masks created at this workshop will be displayed as part of Altered Realities, MAP's Fall Benefit Exhibition, from September 14 — November 4. All masks will be silently auctioned on October 28th, each priced with a starting bid at $100. Proceeds from the auction will be split equally between the artist and MAP.
Registration is required. (see ticket URL link to register)
