The face mask has become a highly charged symbol of defiance/solidarity, self-expression/disguise, and beauty/functionality. All in all, it has become the symbol of the COVID era. In this special exhibition, artists have created a wearable fine art face mask as a means of expressing their view of these strange and intense times.

The mask serves as a canvas, and the artists are encouraging us to explore themes around protection, mental health, activism, breath, and identity, to name a few.

See these special masks in this social-distance friendly exhibition, in the windows of your favorite Urban Arts Crawl venues.

Urban Arts Crawl is proudly presented by: 
The Rockwell Museum, The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes, and Urban Corning.
Made possible with support from the Community Foundation of Elmira-Corning and the Finger Lakes
