A Celebration of Mexican Masks From Chicago Collections

October 5 – October 27, 1984

This exhibition consists of a rich variety of masks chosen from the holdings of Chicago Collectors. The admittedly personal selection emphasizes form, craft, and inventive use of materials rather than age and guaranteed authenticity. It includes works of considerable age as well as those of contemporary carvers who continue the tradition of excellence in carving.
