MASKS4PEOPLE was cofounded by Kristen Dodge and Laleh Khorramian on March 12, 2020 in response to the developing crisis of COVID-19. The Tang Museum commissioned the group to create new masks in collaboration with artist Nicole Cherubini and her current mezzanine exhibition. Working with a team of artists based in the Hudson Valley, the project reflects both pandemic and protest.
