One Read Art Exhibit
“You invent yourself.” – George Orson, from “Await Your Reply” by Dan Chaon
These masks and more are currently on display at the Columbia Public Library. They were created on September 25, 2010 by participants in this year’s One Read art workshop. Participants explored alter egos and alternative selves, inspired by the identity–shifting themes of Dan Chaon’s “Await Your Reply.” Participants crafted masks of paper, cardboard, plastic and other objects to investigate who they are, alternative personas and even who they might like to be. The workshop was led by artist and puppeteer April Karlovit.
