[Photo Story] Borland Project Space: MASKED

The Borland Building is currently showcasing “MASKED,” a faculty-led exhibition that explores the multi-dimensional cultural experience of mask-wearing.

To check it out, head to 125 Borland. Better yet, stick with us for a brief tour of one of Penn State’s newest artistic exhibitions.

The exhibit was curated as a group project between Penn State professors William Doan, Dr. Michael Green, and Emily Steinberg. They completed this collaboration mostly through Zoom meetings, which became the primary source of communication during the pandemic.

Located in the Borland Project Space, the artwork explores the cultural, political, and personal history of masking and how COVID-19 has influenced mask-wearing.

The space is lined with large illustrations and comics, as well as a collection of masks on showcase.

The MASKED display is open to the public from January 12 through March 2.
