Interpreted through objects, archives, and educational programs are three major themes: 1. Becoming Someone Else – the use of masks in ritual and celebrations of various cultures; 2. Learning from a Master – folk art apprenticeships in South Jersey; and 3. Behind the Story – exploring legends, stories, and beliefs among the diverse communities of our region.
