The Weatherspoon Art Museum was wall-to-wall people and had so much positive energy last night at their event, Masquerade. The evening was filled with makeup artists, hair stylists, photographers, and fun. Masquerade was held in conjunction with the exhibit entitled, "Persona: A Body in Parts" that centered around the theme of multiple representations of the self. As we walked through the gallery, a docent accompanied us explaining the artistic process and thought behind each piece. The exhibit was the perfect backdrop for this Halloween weekend event where people dressed in masks, costumes, and face paint.
The Membership Committee of the Weatherspoon held the event in an effort to gain new members. We don't know how many people actually joined tonight but, surely, talk of this event will ripple through the community and bring the museum even more visibility-- maybe even members. From La Calavera Catrina to a life-sized, walking Lisa Frank trapper keeper, creativity abounded. A good time was had by all. Masks and hats off to Greensboro for another fun, FREE, event. Wouldn't it be great for the Weatherspoon to make this an annual event.
