The Denver Hospice produces The Mask Project – a gallery of handcrafted clay masks by renowned artists, celebrities, sports figures, heroes and community leaders.
Through the online auction of hundreds of masks and generous community sponsorships, this biennial community event raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for end-of-life care throughout the Denver area.
More than 1 million visitors to the Cherry Creek Shopping Center viewed The Mask Project. The online auction of masks generated hundreds of thousands of hits on The Mask Project website www.themaskproject.org
where bidding gets fierce – especially during the final days.
In 2012, The Mask Project celebrated its 14th Anniversary. Since its founding in 1998, The Mask Project has captured national attention and raised nearly $4.5 million for end-of-life care.
The mask collection was ready for online viewing over a four-week span from Monday, September 8 through Sunday, October 5, 2014 at www.themaskproject.org
When & Where:
The Gallery of Masks was on display at Cherry Creek Shopping Center through Sunday, October 5, 2014. The Cherry Creek Shopping Center is at 3000 E. First Avenue, in the heart of Denver’s Cherry Creek neighborhood.

How we get masks:
A committee of volunteers and staff of The Denver Hospice work hard to procure masks from professional and novice artists, celebrities, sports figures, community leaders, and others. Our goal is to curate an unparalleled gallery of beautiful mask artwork. If you are interested in becoming a mask artist please contact us
