|This mask, created by an Imagine! client,|
will be on display at Longmont's Muse Gallery
from May 10 through June 29.
Over the past few weeks, Imagine! clients in an art class run by Imagine!’s CORE/Labor Source department and taught by Bridget Carroll have been expressing their creativity by creating their very own masks. One of masks will be included in the Longmont Muse Gallery’s exhibition UnMasked: The Language of Cultural Identity.
The exhibition will feature masks by artists with their interpretation of cultures and symbolism from around the world as well as traditional ceremonial masks from Mexico and South America on loan from the Museo de las Americas.
As part of the exhibit, the Community Space of the Muse will feature masks created by local nonprofits and community organizations. The masks are being designed to illustrate the various cultures of participating organizations. In addition to Imagine!’s mask, other organizations who will be contributing masks include Our Center, the Inn Between, the Longmont Community Foundation, the Longmont Humane Society, and the Longmont Community Justice Partnership.
The exhibit will run from May 10 through June 29. The Muse Gallery is located at 356 Main St in Longmont, and its hours are Tuesday through Friday from 11 am to 5 pm, Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm. It is also open until 9 pm on the 2nd Friday of each month. Admission to the gallery is free.
I hope to see you there!
