BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The Baton Rouge Gallery is partnering with over 60 of its member artists to feature their original works on face masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

For every $25 donated to the Baton Rouge Gallery, donors will receive their choice of any the face coverings available. Each mask will be shipped to the donor’s home at no additional charge or can be picked up at the gallery during normal business hours.

For an additional $15, donors can choose to gift a mask to a first responder.

Organizers with the Baton Rouge Gallery say the face masks offer triple-layer protection with quilted, breathable fabric and a comfortable fit and shape that contours to your face. Each one is reusable and machine washable.

Donors can make their donations and view the available masks on the gallery’s website by clicking here.

Organizers say each mask helps support local and regional artists whose livelihood may have been impacted by COVID-19, as well as, the Baton Rouge Gallery.
