Project facade

I was speaking with Dennis Issac, Faculty member in the Fiber Department, last night about his really amazing and very touching work with veterans as part of his job as a master pattern maker at Under Armour. I mentioned a Smithsonian article I had read about Anna Coleman Ladd, a young woman sculptor who, moved by the tragedies of disfigured soldiers returning from WWI, dedicated herself to working on tin masks these men could wear in order to be able to integrate back into society and their families a little bit more. In searching for the article, I came across this work "Project Facade" that I thought a few of you might find very interesting.
