Carr Library Exhibit: Masks - Fun, Ritual, Identity, and Protection

As a supplementary to the Mask Making student engagement event in Spring 2020, an exhibit was started to focus on the different types and uses of masks.  Featured at Carr library, this exhibit goes through the themes of masks for fun, ritual/culture, protection and identity.  The different images, objects, and resources on display are featured below to experience the exhibit virtually. Covid-19 shutdown the libraries and we wanted our users to experience what we had planned on site at the library.
