The Art of the Paper Mask


  • Gary Public Library 220 W. 5th Avenue Gary, IN United States (map)

The Art of the Paper Mask by the late Charles Buggs will be on display. The display features culturally influenced masks constructed from paper and cardboard that appears to be carved from wood. Buggs, an East Chicago native and Howard University graduate, created a variation on a traditional method of mask construction while majoring in art education and art history. Buggs’ materials consisted of inexpensive cardboard, brown paper and Elmer’s white glue. The display will be open during regular library hours.
