Announcing the winners of the 2021 Mask Making competition sponsored by Religious Studies.

Masks have been used for religious, dramatic, and other artistic purposes for thousands of years. Masks have also been used to protect the wearer from injury in combat, in sports, and in more recent times, from pathogens. Due to Covid-19, masks have also become part of our daily lives. The aim of the competition was to help elevate the mundane burden of Covid masks to something more artistic, more symbolic, more culturally expressive.

 

Each student created a sculptural mask and provided a short video performance with insight into the ideation and technical approach to the judges. The University-wide competition was juried by Lawrence Pasternack, Professor of Philosophy and Director of Religious Studies, Jessica Teckemeyer, Assistant Professor of Sculpture, and Tom Wikle, Professor of Geography and CAS Associate Dean.
