Smiling Through the Mask

Smiling Through The Mask by Daniel Archambault

 On display: June - August 2021

Smiling Through the Mask by Cubberley artist Daniele Archambault is a collection of humorous cartoons about life during the COVID-19 pandemic. 100 copies of this book can be found in neighborhood book boxes and public places, all over Palo Alto. People can enjoy it for a while and then pass it on to someone else. The goal is to help people to rediscover their sense of belonging to the community by laughing together at situations we all experienced. Each copy of the book has a unique number. Just like you want your loved ones to check in with you while they’re traveling, you can help this book check in while it’s traveling by sharing its unique number in your #SmilingThruTheMask posts. 

Please, join in the fun and share your own #SmilingThruTheMask stories and creative work!
