The Fort Collins Museum of Art's 12th annual Masks exhibition and silent auction will open at 5:00pm on April 1st. Since 2003, the Masks Project has attracted both professional artists, whose creativity is their economic main stay and recreational artists, who respond to their need to express their creativeness in ingenious styles. The result is an exhibition of 200 pieces of unconventional art, the celebratory Masks Grand Gala on April 22, 2016, and a tribute to the 2016 Honorary Chair, Michael Powers.
