Los Angeles artist Mary Beth Heffernan is the rare person who decided to actually try to solve a problem half way around the world.

Last summer, Heffernan, who is also an art professor at Occidental College, became obsessed with the images of Ebola health care workers in those white ghost-like protective suits.

She wondered, ‘Why don’t they put photos on the outside of the suit showing the health care workers wearing big smiles?’
