"The Face and the Mask" opens at Mulvane Art Museum June 22

Works from the collections of Topekans Marc Lahr and Chris and John Grandmontagne comprise the exhibit “The Face and the Mask” to be featured at June 22 through Sept. 22 at the Mulvane Art Museum.

This family friendly exhibition, which speaks of different cultures, artistic expressions and experiences as humans, includes a wide variety of forms, colors and media. Each mask is a work of art, and all are different in that they are an expression of cultural rituals, adornment, disguise, playful and joyful celebrations and dark and frightening human emotions.

 An opening reception will be from 5 to 8 p.m., Friday, June 28.

The Mulvane Art Museum, ArtLab and gift shop are open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.  Admission is free. The museum is closed major holidays.

The Mulvane is located on the campus of Washburn University, at 17th and Jewell Streets. 

Free parking is available directly to the west of the museum. Call 785.670.1124 or go to
