An exhibition series combining art, speakers, and topics relevant to public health

Fall 2023

Exhibition #3 | Leprosy: The Separating Sickness, October 26-February 7

Open Monday through Friday 9am-5pm
Saturdays 10am-2pm

This compelling showcase provides an intimate glimpse into the lives of patients at the Carville National Leprosarium, as documented through the lens of Johnny P. Harmon, photographer, artist, and patient at the facility where he and his wife were residents. The collection of photographs and other memorabilia is a poignant tribute to a bygone era when leprosy, now known as Hansen's disease, led to the isolation of those afflicted. Learn more!
