Capturing history and giving back
The following organizations are selected for donations
This ongoing art series aims to honour everyone who does their part to keep each other safe. The intent is to highlight the simplest form of limiting community spread, to boost morale and also give back to affected communities. Proceeds from purchases go back to the project as well as donations toward COVID 19 Relief funds, both internationally and in the United States.
The wearing of a mask has been proven to reduce the spread of the virus known as COVID 19. As the virus is still contagious during periods without symptoms and even for those who show no signs, a simple wearing of a mask during high exposure periods to the public or in enclosed spaces reduces unknown spread. A mask is only one of many combined efforts the public and communities can do to flatten the curve.
You can learn from the CDC about mask wearing here.
Original Mask Drawings and prints can be purchased directly through the artist. The website purchases will be made available soon, until then, you may visit social media accounts (FB / IG) and reach out about your mask drawing.
The Mask Project is also being presented in Milan Sept 17 - 30 2020 during Milan Fashion Week at M.A.D.S. Gallery at www.madsmilano.com - The piece "Through Their Eyes" introduces the project as well as prices itself as $0.01 for every death world-wide. The proceeds of the sale of this project piece will go toward charities donations for COVID Relief as well.
