Friday, May 5, 2017 — Bob Ibold (Mask Collector) Bob Ibold, also known as the “Mask Man,” is a collector, artist, and author residing in Lancaster, PA. Bob began his mask collection in the 1980s, at first interested in them as beautiful pieces of art. As his collection grew, he became more interested in their history, how they were used, what they represented, and the stories around them. Bob has since authored a book about his mask collection, and is looking forward to sharing both the ethnography and art of his masks with us at the Memory Café.
