There will be a ticketed reception to view the casts and meet the artist, Friday, September 8, 6:00pm-8:30pm. There will be light refreshments and music. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at http://bit.ly/2vj7fbC.
The Cast of Blues exhibit is a multi-media, disability friendly and interactive educational, one-of-a-kind collection.

The artist invites everyone to "please touch" these masks.
