Curated by: Dr. Michelle Wibbelsman, Associate Professor at the Ohio State University and Director of the Kawsay Ukhunchay Andean and Amazonian Indigenous Art and Cultural Artifacts Research Collection at OSU.
About the exhibit: In 2020 OSU alumnus Mark Gordon and Barton College entrusted the Center for Latin American Studies Program and the Kawsay Ukhunchay Andean and Amazonian Indigenous Art and Cultural Artifacts Research Collection at The Ohio State University, with a series of exquisite diablada masks from various Latin American countries. Masked festival traditions depicting devils in a variety of forms abound in Latin America. Student curators for the Andean and Amazonian Collection dedicated themselves to cleaning and repairing the masks in preparation for display.
