Eye Center of Northern Colorado | Kaiser Permanente Masks Exhibition
April 7 – May 5, 2017
The Fort Collins Museum of Art launches its thirteenth Masks event as a popular, not-to-be-missed community happening, an exhibition of exceptional artistic creativity and a highly successful fundraiser. The trifecta of events begins April 7, 2017, with the Masks Exhibition opening, followed by the Masks Gala, April 21 at the Hilton Fort Collins and, the Exhibition closing, May 7. Both the opening and closing are on Downtown Fort Collins First Friday Gallery Walk nights, hosted by title sponsors, Kaiser Permanente, Eye Center of Northern Colorado.
“The opening is one of the largest art happenings in Fort Collins,” says Lisa Hatchadoorian, Executive Director of FCMOA. “If history repeats, on April 7, 1400 Masks enthusiasts will circulate through the museum to place opening bids on the over 200 masks in the 2017 exhibition.” Over its 13-year history, Masks has raised $1.1 million to support the museums exhibitions and educational programming.
The Masks exhibition and silent auction features over 200 artists from Colorado and beyond, who have transformed a blank ceramic mask into unique, creative artworks. Each mask is for sale in a silent auction to benefit the museum.
