Friday November 21, 2014 brought the close of Courage Unmasked TN. What a privilege to host the inaugural exhibit and fundraiser of this amazing art project! Thank you to all who volunteered their time, donated their masks after radiation treatment and a heartfelt thank you to all of the artists that transformed these masks in to statements on courage.

If you missed the exhibit or want to share it with friends, each mask and the exhibit are on a free mobile app called "Piggyback". It's available for free in the app store for ipads, iphones, and smart phones.
