Rainforest Masks of Costa Rica

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

Selby Gardens is once again hosting the ever-popular Rainforest Masks of Costa Rica. The vibrant, hand-carved and painted balsa wood masks showcased in this 15th annual exhibit at Selby Gardens represent the work of 10 top painters, six top carvers plus several new emerging artists. These artists from the Boruca tribe in Costa Rica share a sense of belonging and group collaboration. 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.

Masks on display are available for purchase.
