Save the Masks

In the Golden Years of Santa Barbara's Old Spanish Days Fiesta,
international dancers,
Maria and Jaroslav Brozik,
performed with their company at Fiesta celebrations throughout
Santa Barbara. We are working together to preserve this collection
of twenty-two
historic masks, to keep them in our
community for our children and
future generations.

5 Organizations are Collaborating
to Save the Historic Masks

The Santa Barbara County Arts Commission has pledged $1000 toward the costs of purchase and restoration. The Santa Barbara Historical Museum will store the masks. The Lobero Theater Foundation is providing the venue to exhibit them for a patron party,  the Profant Foundation for the Arts will plan performances and costuming to bring the dances back to life, and members of Old Spanish Days are stepping in to help with this campaign that will raise funds for the purchase, restoration and performance needs.  

These organizations are asking for community support. Their goal is to keep the masks in Santa Barbara for the enjoyment of our children and future generations. Residents interested in preserving Santa Barbara's cultural heritage can call 682-8184 for an invitation to the private party and for more details.

This project is funded in part by the Organizational Development Grant Program using funds provided by the City of Santa Barbara in partnership with the Santa Barbara Arts Commission.
