If you happen to be new to Sarasota and have not seen this annual exhibit, get ready for a sensory experience! Come see the walls of Selby’s Museum of Botany & the Arts covered with hundreds of hand-carved and painted wooden masks created by master carvers from the southwestern indigenous village of Boruca, Costa Rica.
