California Native Animals Mask Exhibit This week we opened a special exhibit featuring three-dimensional, mixed media animal masks made by the second grade students at Gateway School. Students conduct in depth research on native animals before creating these masks, a project which uses both artistic and scientific skills. Come by soon to see their impressive interpretations of our local wildlife. On exhibit now through April 4.
