Whitney Lynn Mask Set
Set of two fabric face coverings made from two layers of 100% cotton. Choose between small, medium and large size. Printed, cut and sewn in San Francisco. Mask set contains one black on white print and one black on gray print mask.
Artist Whitney Lynn employs a wide range of media to reframe narratives of familiar objects, images and events. Mining cultural and political histories, Lynn reflects on subjects such as collapsed boundaries, militarized landscapes, the mechanisms of illusion and deception, and the role of images in the creation of myth. Born on Williams Air Force Base, she attended the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, received her BFA in Sculpture + Extended Media from Virginia Commonwealth University and MFA in New Genres from the San Francisco Art Institute. Lynn is currently completing a site-specific project for the San Diego International Airport, was recently an Artist-in-Residence at the de Young Museum, San Francisco (2017), and the first National Artist-in-Residence at The Neon Museum, Las Vegas (2016). Lynn is currently showing The Siren with Catharine Clark gallery in San Francisco.
Sales from the artist-print masks fund mask donations to groups who need them. After donating a batch of 300-400 masks we sell a batch of 300-400 mask and repeat as needed.
We expect current orders will ship in about 5 days from order, but it may take longer. First ordered first shipped. If you want to cancel before they ship just email us. No cancelling, refunds, returns or exchanges after shipment.
- Made from two layers of a tight weave 100% cotton.

- Masks are steam ironed before mailing. Please wash and dry them before using, and wash and dry, or thoroughly steam iron them between uses. Print will fade with repeated washing. We recommend washing masks in a mesh bag as you would wash delicates, or hanging to dry to prolong the lifespan as the elastic straps can get caught in washing machines.
- Masks have a wire nose bridge which helps keep the top part of the mask snug to the nose. Adjust this by gently bending the wire to fit your face/nose.
