When it comes to the art of mask making, everyone in this tiny Montana town seems to know someone who’s mastered the skill. Some people make some of the masks out of materials purchased in the local dollar store, and others use costumes and personal pieces of clothing. People even visit cities nationwide to order supplies online and make masks there.

The town is Rally, and says they are proud of their roots. All masks in the 13 artsy galleries here are made from parts in the fabric of other people’s masks. They go on display and the next mask lovers’ convention brings even more people to the town with all kinds of masks on display. Masks even decorate the local streets.

For some of the masks, people in Rally have played with different materials. In one bar, visitors can touch and feel the fabric from a mask as people talk about it. (You can read a picture of them here.) People find all sorts of materials for masks in their community, and some even use it to make something of pride, a symbol of where they’re from. They can be meant as a kind of trophy, or more obviously, as part of the ultimate farewell.
