‘Masks in the Aftermath’ Documentary
May 25 @ 12:00 pm
The “Mask Making as a Tool for Community Expression and Healing in the Aftermath” project continues with a preview of the documentary film “Masks in the Aftermath” and the launch of an Indie Go-Go campaign for the documentary film and book project. Crystal Fortwangler, the film’s director, will be present for a short Q&A. This project, after hurricanes Irma and Maria, mirrored a variety of community public art and art therapy projects that have been successful in supporting the emotional and social recovery process after a disaster. The project targeted students, senior citizens and other community members, schools and organizations on St. John. The masks were also displayed at the Department of the Interior’s Library in Washington D.C. in the fall of 2018, and they were featured in the November 2019 magazine of the National Endowment for the Arts. Call Priscilla Knight for the time of the exhibit/film.
