Noon Lecture: Every Mask Tells a Story

Every Mask Tells a Story with Marilynn & C.J. Shelley

Wednesday, March 12, 2014 from noon – 1:00 pm, Great Room by the Bay 

2014 marks a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Rainforest Masks exhibitions at Selby Gardens.  Join C.J. and Marilynn Shelley for a presentation on masks created by the artists of Boruca, Costa Rica.  Discover the history of the masks and how the modern-day artists have helped to preserve this history while adding a part of their personalities to each mask they carve and paint.  Learn how preservation and conservation remain a constant concern for both their village and Selby Gardens and how those efforts have merged over the years.  Meet three of the Borucan artists at the lecture.

Free with admission. No RSVP required. Please enter through the Welcome Center.
