    Love the photos of the statues reaching for the sky, Erin. Can’t believe they have a First Nations mask from Vancouver Island–I’ll bet the artist never imagined the piece would travel so far!

      It’s funny, the mask came to Medford in the 19th century because a Medford resident worked for the Smithsonian and sent some things back to the “curiosity room” in the new Medford Library.
