Friends of CAAC,

As we continue to navigate the current COVID-19 climate, we are here with you. The arts not only shape our cultural identity; they are essential to our daily lives. The Mask Project is an excellent example of what we can do when we work together, crossing boundaries between multiple disciplines to ensure the health and safety of our community. 

Special thanks to our generous project sponsors, Heritage Fund – The Community Foundation of Bartholomew County, Columbus Regional Health and Healthy Communities Proyecto Salud Action Team.

With gratitude, 

Kathryn Armstrong
Executive Director

Amigos de CAAC,

Mientras continuamos navegando este nuevo ambiente de COVID-19, estamos con ustedes. Las artes no solo le dan forma a nuestra identidad colectiva, son esenciales para nuestro día a día. The Mask Project es un excelente ejemplo de lo que podemos hacer cuando trabajamos juntos, cruzando barreras entre diferentes disciplinas, para asegurar la salud y seguridad de nuestra comunidad.

Gracias especiales a nuestros generosos patrocinadores para este proyecto, Heritage Fund – The Community Foundation of Bartholomew County, Columbus Regional Health y Healthy Communities Proyecto Salud Action Team.

To help promote public health in Bartholomew County, we have launched The Mask Project.

This project is supported by a collective grant from Heritage Fund – the Community Foundation of Bartholomew County, Columbus Regional Health and Healthy Communities Proyecto Salud Action Team.

The Mask Project is engaging local artists and designers to create custom fabric patterns for face masks that are not only useful, but also fun and fashionable. Many creative professionals have been affected by COVID-19, and this project creates a new opportunity within the local creative economy. Through The Mask Project we hope artists and designers can serve not only as leaders and ambassadors of arts and culture, but also of public health. 

Participating artists: Shorf Afza, Steven Baker, Victoria Bell, Britt Brewer, Brooke Hawkins, Yoonji Jung, Rachel Kavathe, Jenni Kiesler, LAA Office [Lulu Loquidis and Daniel Martinez], Pierre Obando, Bobbie K Owens, Michele Pollock, Jennifer Riley, Daren Redman, Chris Sullivan, Melanie Brock, Stacy Hardy, Mark Kebasso and Priscilla Rocha.

With the help of volunteers, CAAC aims to produce 7,500 free masks that will be available from safe pick-up locations throughout Bartholomew County. If you are interested in volunteering to make masks, please contact us at info@artsincolumbus.org.

Stay tuned for updates on The Mask Project, including pick-up dates and locations and more information on an exhibition of the finished designs. 

Para ayudar a promover la salud pública en Bartholomew County, hemos lanzado The Mask Project (El Proyecto de Tapabocas).

Este proyecto es apoyado por un subsidio colectivo de Heritage Fund – the Community Foundation of Bartholomew County, Columbus Regional Health y Healthy Communities Proyecto Salud Action Team.

The Mask Project está involucrando a artistas y diseñadores locales para crear patrones de tela para las mascarillas faciales que son útiles, divertidas y fashionables. Muchos profesionales creativos se han visto afectados por COVID-19, y este proyecto crea una nueva oportunidad dentro de la economía creativa local. Por medio de The Mask Project, esperamos que los artistas y diseñadores puedan servir, no solo como líderes y embajadores de las artes y la cultura, sino también de la salud pública.

Artistas/Diseñadores participantes: Shorf Afza, Steven Baker, Victoria Bell, Britt Brewer, Brooke Hawkins, Yoonji Jung, Rachel Kavathe, Jenni Kiesler, LAA Office [Lulu Loquidis and Daniel Martinez], Pierre Obando, Bobbie K Owens, Michele Pollock, Jennifer Riley, Daren Redman, Chris Sullivan, Melanie Brock, Stacy Hardy, Mark Kebasso y Priscilla Rocha.

Con la ayuda de voluntarios, CAAC tiene como objetivo producir 7.500 tapabocas gratuitos que estarán disponibles para ser recogidos en locaciones seguras dentro de Bartholomew County. Si está interesado en ser voluntario para hacer tapabocas, contáctenos en info@artsincolumbus.org.
