Exhibit | Cultural Mask Presentations

Please join Dr. Faiia’s Cultural Anthropology class for an exhibit of cultural masks created and discussed by students.

Masks have long been used in all cultures in a variety of roles and functions. The purpose of masks is numerous but the human need for them is perhaps universal. In some cases, masks are created for a reason such as to ensure fertile crops; the more important the reason the more powerful the mask. It is unclear when humans first started using masks but there is evidence of them even in prehistoric cave art.

 Light refreshments will be served.
