The San Juan Islands Museum of Art (SJIMA) has a new take on COVID-19
masks. Come and see the artsy and fun masks made just for SJIMA. If we
need to wear them, then let’s be stylish – buy one for every outfit.
There are masks of art by famous artists such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s
Bouquet of Roses & Poppy Field, Vincent Van Gogh’s Field With Iris, Gustav
Klimt’s Venetian Glass and George Seurat’s A Sunday on La Grande Jatte.
There are other designs such as Frida’s Roses, paintbrushes and paint palettes
and many more.
The kid’s masks are fun and whimsical turtles and fairies, Superman and animals.
The masks come in adult, X large and kid’s-sizes. They are all comfortable
washable cotton except a few have elastic ties. The adult & XL sizes cost $15
and the kids’-sized cost $12. All proceeds are donated to SJIMA’s programs
and exhibitions. Prices do not include sales tax.
The We Can Do It! mask inspired by the Westinghouse poster in WWII, often
called Rosie the Riveter, is our tribute to the 100 th anniversary of Women’s
Suffrage this year. This is a limited edition; all are adult-sized and cost $18.
Sorry, they are not for sale online.
All the masks were designed and made by volunteers supporting the SJIMA-
quilters Nancy Best, Barb Snider, Julie Weaver, Mary Zeretzke & Diane
Martindale. The pattern online is by Judy Coates Perez.
The masks are on display during regular SJIMA hours Thursday-Monday 11-
5, and after Labor Day, Friday-Monday 11-5. No admission is charged to
shop in the gift area. SJIMA admission to the whole museum and exhibitions
is $10, with members and those 18 and under admitted free of charge.
Mondays are Pay As You Can Days.
SJIMA is located at 540 Spring Street, Friday Harbor, WA. Go to www.sjima.org
