The Museum of International Masks and Puppets' collection is based on the six primary geographic locations of cultures: Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania, and South America. Within that the collections focus on specific cultures.
Our focused collections are:
In each of our collections the attempt is made to collect for two distinctly different uses: "Viewing" and “Hands On." Art and anthropological museum pieces are collected for gallery presentations. Contemporary artifacts that are presentations of a culture’s heritage are collected for “hands on use” and performance.
Hands on contemporary artifacts are presented with supportive resource materials in Open Hand Theater's Traveling Mask and Puppet Museum, our "Out of the Box" artifacts lending library, and in selected artist residency programs.
