Ethnological Mask Collection
The Arizona State Museum houses over 600 contemporary Mexican masks, a large portion of the Donald Cordry Collection. Visitors to the Paths of Life exhibition will see fine examples of Yaqui and Mayo Pascola masks from one of the largest collections in any American museum. Several world class African masks were given to the Museum by African art connoisseur and former Brooklyn Museum Curator, Frederick Pleasants, in the 1960s.
