Art can provide an important intellectual and emotional outlet when the artist and the audience face personal and social challenges. After 2 years of an anemic social environment due to a challenging global crisis, privatization has trumped community in many respects. This process has been visually hallmarked by face coverings, which, while vital to public health, also represent the suppression of social interaction contributing to emotional isolation. In Unmasked, printmakers reintroduce themselves to society through self-portraits. Participants were asked to create a self-portrait that is recognizable yet not necessarily realistic. These portraits range in print media, from relief prints of woodcut and linoleum to intaglio and lithography.
