A Celebration of Mexican Masks From Chicago Collections


A Celebration of Mexican Masks From Chicago Collections, Oct 5 – Oct 27, 1984

Summary: 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.
