During the pandemic, face masks have become a ubiquitous part of our environment, impacting our thoughts, interactions, and relationships with others. In January, DAVA Youth worked remotely to create a series of photographs featuring face masks in different settings. In Masquerading, their art explores how wearing a mask changes our faces, which can feel invasive or protective, and even allow us to create new personalities.

Photographer Preston Utley adds to this exhibition with a series of black and white photographs documenting mask wearing and other desolate scenes from the pandemic.

Don’t miss a second display of photography in DAVA’s windows as you walk by, featuring the project Quaranteens. This exhibit features photographs by middle and high school students who worked remotely over 10 weeks, addressing current events through their own lens. Their photo-journal diaries involve playful and poignant portrayals of their time during quarantine.
