The Denver Hospice produces The Mask Project – a gallery of handcrafted clay masks by renowned artists, celebrities, sports figures, heroes and community leaders.

Through the online auction of hundreds of masks and generous community sponsorships, this biennial community event raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for end-of-life care throughout the Denver area.
