Rainforest Masks of Costa Rica

15th Annual Exhibit

January 6 2019 to January 27 2019 · 10:00am  – 4:30pm

The vibrant, hand-carved and painted balsa wood masks showcased in this exhibit at Selby Gardens represent the work of some of the top painters and carvers plus several new emerging artists from the Boruca tribe in Costa Rica. They share a sense of belonging and group collaboration, and as an indigenous community, their folk art serves as an ambassador for their culture and shares their story with the world. Through their masks and their yearly “Festival of the Diablitos,” they strive to keep their traditions alive. At the same time their artistic exchange becomes the fire that drives innovation and transformation. The masks on display are available for sale.

FREE with General Admission


OPENING RECEPTION – JANUARY 5: This reception gives you the first chance to purchase the masks of your choosing before the exhibition opens to the general public over the month of January.
