A space that has normally served as a display area for artwork created by professional Louisiana artists in the main building of Touro Infirmary on Prytania Street is now exhibiting artwork created by survivors of traumatic brain injuries.

The display of 14 painted masks were created by different survivors of brain injuries who all live in Louisiana.

Each mask has its own story to tell. One mask painted by a survivor from Hammond is painted black over the left eye representing how the survivor, a man named Patrick, lost vision in his left eye after his accident.
