Adrian Wilson and Heidi Hankaniemi made a matching suit and gown for a day-long performance in the city. Would you wear a gown made of surgical masks? What if it was a work of art?

As New Yorkers cautiously venture back to museums and galleries, a pair of artists took personal protective equipment to the next level last month when they crafted their own face mask formal wear for a performance that took them all over the city.

Artists Adrian Wilson and Heidi Hankaniemi created their couture-style looks in the hopes of encouraging people to wear masks to help combat the spread of illness.

Accompanied by photographer Tudor Vasilescu, the two rode the subway, enjoyed an appointment for the New Museum’s Jordan Casteel show, strolled through Washington Square Park, and grabbed a drink, all the while kitted-out in eye-catching protective gear.
