As one of Fort Collins most acclaimed community art events, the 2019 DaVinci Sign Systems|Eye Center of Northern Colorado Masks Exhibition and Benefit opens on First Friday, April 5. The exhibition closing on May 3 will conclude the silent auction bidding for the masks.
200 exceptionally creative works of art that will comprise the 30-day exhibition and silent auction. In the previous 14 years, artists, title sponsors, as well as loyal, long-time sponsors, donors, mask buyers and visitors to the exhibition have helped raise over $1.5 million dollars to support the museum’s mission.
In total, there have been over 2500 masks designed and donated by artists, most of whom live in Northern Colorado. Some mask artists, such as Bob Coonts, a Colorado native and Fort Collins artist, have been with the Masks project nearly every year since its beginning in 2003.
