Every Mask Needs Some Body
Because a mask doesn't really come to life until you wear it. Or adopt it!

Many of the masks in this year-long exhibit at the MSU Museum are available for adoption. Maybe by you! While we can't actually send the mask home with you, we will send you a keepsake magnet with a picture of your mask acknowledging your sponsorship. And your gift will keep giving new life to Mask: Secrets and Revelations, the exhibit and all the related events throughout the year. Adoptions come in three sizes. See below for more details. Your adoption is a contribution to the museum and is tax deductible under both Michigan and Federal law.

Bring a mask to life. Adopt a mask!

All mask adoptions support the MSU Museum's mask exhibit and programming, and can be made by check or credit card.
Checks can be mailed to: University Advancement, attention Annie James, 300 Spartan Way, East Lansing, MI 48824. Please include this code on the memo line: AB05058. If you prefer to use a credit card, please contact Annie James at 517.884.1065 or email her at and she will be happy to assist you.

And don't forget to note the number of the mask you are supporting! All adopters will receive a fun magnetized photo of their adopted mask with their name(s) inscribed as adopter.

Thank you for supporting the MASK: Secrets and Revelations exhibit at the MSU Museum!
