Masks: The Art of Becoming

Historically, masks were widely used up and down the Northwest Coast as a tool of transformation; to become someone or something; to tell the stories of creation; and to explain the histories of rights and privileges. Today, they continue to be both forms for ceremony and active practice, as well as aesthetic expressions of artistic mastery. Join us as we celebrate masks as both an artform and living cultural expression, made by artists from all around the Northwest Coast.
