Seeing Through Our Eyes
Fall 2008, Sedona Public Library, Sedona, AZ
with photo contributions by Larry Lindahl
This project was the result of a City of Sedona grant. Its purpose was to bring community members together to share something about themselves through mask making. The Sedona Public Library donated a room to conduct the two-and-a-half day workshop. Ten volunteers assisted in planning and preparation. Nearly forty masks were made by people ranging in ages eight to 98. On day one, masks were constructed. The second day they were explored through writing, talking, or acting. The last night they were shared with the public. The Sedona Public Library exhibited the masks for three weeks.
““The communal process of having a mask made of us, for us, began a wonderful sense of connection and community.”
- Larry Lindahl, professional photographer & author of Secret Sedona.
“I walked away with a deeper perspective on myself and others and how we work through this puzzle called life.”
- Louis Vaughn, technician.
