Hawk Mask

People have used masks across cultures and throughout human history.  They are worn in a variety of contexts including performances, rituals, and religious rites.  They allow the wearer to take on a new, and often more powerful, identity. This exhibit showcases the breadth and depth of the Museum’s collections of masks from all areas of the globe.
