FACES Game Day Art Piece

  Acrylic on canvas painting of a fall scene in a park - created by very special artists: the patients, families, friends, doctors and staffers of the NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center and FACES!  Each of the 2x2 inchsmall canvas squares that create this one large piece, were painted by children and adults of the FACES community. Painting took place at the annual Game Day event in October 2013 for families, or in the office at the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center. Canvas measures 24x26". The work of FACES is no different from this painting—it needs the help of many different hands in order to reach its goal.  Every doctor, every patient, every bit of research, every dollar spent, every dollar raised, brings us one step closer to making life easier for our loved ones living with epilepsy and seizures.  We are all part of the answer; we are all part of the picture.
