Animal Spirits ~ A Gallery of Masks & Puppets

Gathering from the far reaches of the world, animal images, symbols and spirits come to life in this gallery of masks and puppets.              

Often the animal images are disguised, hidden and twisting within the different masks.  

The Exhibit was designed through our Apprenticeship Program by guest curator Neely Kinne assisted by Tim Howard, Caitlin Friedberg and Cindi Farrell .
