Stay Home, Stay Safe – Masks in the Time of the Covid-19 Pandemic: A project of the Michigan Legacy Art Park, collaborating with the Leelanau Community Cultural Center
OAB is hosting an in-person exhibit to share the work of over 360 Leelanau County middle and high school students and volunteers from Michigan Legacy Art Park.
Using various materials, participants are creating works of art by altering or enhancing paper mache masks to relate how the conditions imposed by the COVID pandemic have affected them mentally, physically, socially and in other ways.
Participating schools include Glen Lake Community Schools, Leland Public School, Northport Public School, The Pathfinder School, St. Mary School, and Suttons Bay Public Schools.
The outcome of this project should demonstrate that art is both a bridge for social consciousness and a means of communication that connects people.
