The hand print in the last page of this book was the foundation of “I Am Essential” shirts that were used years later for the Essential Art Musicians and Friends fundraiser. Michelle organized it to benefit the Harry Chapin Food Bank after organizing a food and fund drive for St Matthew’s House a week before Thanksgiving when she learned there were no turkeys or side dishes yet for about 1000 families that were expected for dinner. Thanks to the loving actions of her friends in the Little Black Dress Club, there was plenty of food served that Thanksgiving. Since 2000, Michelle has been painting “The Prints of Freedom” by turning people’s hands into art that embodies who a person is and what they do to celebrate freedom.
