Inspired by the Rubin's exhibition Becoming Another: The Power of Masks, (opening March 13) this workshop considers masks as tools for story-telling and personal transformation. Through gallery visits, image-based discussions, and mask making workshops, the class will explore the psychological role of the “masks” we wear in public, as well as the potential masks hold as tools for insight. Each participant will create two masks—one representing the outer self, and one the inner self—and reflect on the process with the group.
