Opening Night: Historical Masks of Slovenian Mardi Gras Exhibit

February 21, 2017


The Slovenian Museum and Archives (6407 St. Clair Ave., Cleveland) will open an exhibit on the historical masks of Slovenian Mardi Gras. For centuries, masks have been used throughout Slovenia in the celebration of Mardi Gras -- the Kurent is the most well known Slovenian mask here in Cleveland, but in fact, there are several others which are all highly unique and intriguing. This exhibit will explore the wide variety of traditional masks, as well as their origins and meanings. This exhibition is loaned by the Slovene Ethnographic Museum, based in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The event will run from 6-9pm, and begin with a 45-minute presentation in English by Adela Pukl, M.Sc., a curator at the Slovene Ethnographic Museum, where she is responsible for the collections of the Department of Spiritual Culture. Admission is free and open to the public and a spread of complimentary refreshments will be provided.

SMA provides an educational, cultural and literary resource for families that includes archives, library and museum.
