The exhibit is filled with portraits of children smiling, laughing and greeting the world. You would never guess that each one lives with a rare disease.
“Beyond the Diagnosis” debuted at Brown University’s Alpert Medical School in early 2015 with seventeen portraits. Now it boasts nearly 150, including six children from Rhode Island, and paintings contributed by twenty-two Rhode Island artists. The exhibit tours medical schools, research institutes and hospitals around the globe.
