WESTMONT – J. Anthony Kosar, the award-winning special effects artist based in Westmont, asks fellow FX artists and creatives to donate their safety supplies to the medical community to help in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Please donate any N95 masks, vinyl and nitrile gloves, face shields and other safety items you may have in your stock at your studios to your local hospital," Kosar stated in a news release. "Especially while productions everywhere are shut down, they need these items more than us. They need them to save lives."
He suggests contacting one's local hospital to donate, or to contact him at email@example.com for more information on how to help.

Kosar, a Lisle native, raised his profile in 2013 by winning the Syfy Channel reality show "Face Off." For more about the artist and Kosart Studios, his special FX and sculpture studio, visit www.kosart.com.
