Bill Teeple Announces Mask Decorating Contest“While ICON Gallery is closed due to the Covid19 pandemic, ICON is staying engaged with the community through special events. The event for July is a mask decorating contest. The idea is to submit a creatively decorated protective mask through July 31. It doesn't have to be a hospital quality mask. Commercial protective masks of all kinds, and homemade masks can be the basis. But it does have to be new and unused. Contestants can provide their own masks or a limited number of masks can be obtained from ICON for $1 or $2.•First Prize of $100 and four $25 prizes have been donated by supporters. •Prizes will be awarded on First Friday August 7, 2020. Drop off masks at ICON, 2:00 to 5:00 Tuesday through Friday with your contact information. Photos of your mask can be dropped off at ICON or emailed to ICON: email@example.com. Masks or photos of your mask will be displayed in ICON's front window and photos of your masks will be in on the Current Exhibit page on this website.Approaches you could take include: Painted, sewn, sculpted, mixed media, found objects, functional, non functional, real masks or digital/photoshopped masks, masks by children.
