Many children and adults with craniofacial disorders live with fear and doubt. Oftentimes they feel that they must hide behind a mask. That’s why FACES: The National Craniofacial Association created FACES UnMasked, an art event and auction.
Masks have been created by local artists, celebrities and personalities who have donated their time and talent to make it easier for FACES clients and families to get the help they need. Proceeds from the mask auction will directly help fund the financial assistance program that enables children to travel for reconstructive surgeries and treatment.
FACES UnMasked will take place on Thursday, Oct. 10, from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre on the North Shore. It will be an evening with artist imagery, a meet and greet with the UnMasked artists, food and adult beverages and games for prizes. The highlight of the event will be the silent auction of mask artwork. Dress is business casual.
FACES UnMasked is a blend of art, entertainment, and philanthropy. From Oct. 1-9, many of FACES masks will be exhibited at Hart Gallery, 110 E. Main St. Visit during the gallery hours to see the ways the artists use the masks in their pieces.
