An Unmasked Affair

A unique and enormously creative benefit gala, Courage Unmasked 911, to support needy head and neck cancer patients attracted the participation of more than 100 artists from around the United States, each of whom transformed into fine art a radiation mask that had been used to position and immobilize a cancer patient during treatment. The artists' masks were auctioned on September 9 at American University's Museum at the Katzen Art Center.

See the gallery of extraordinary masks here:

Masks not sold during the auction are expected to be made available through a gallery in the Washington, D.C., area. Check the Courage Unmasked site for details.
