Portraits of Admiration: LESC Bridge 2 Life Camp & Kid's Club

Walking by Angel Street Thrift in Chelsea, we were stopped in our tracks by a portrait of Obama. Though not popular with many these days, the President's likeness was full of hope, admiration and strength. We love primitives and naive art--children's art being a true favorite. There is something special about an innate sense of rhythm, color and composition. We ask ourselves when the last time we felt the joy of free, unhindered expression. A look at these works of art, portraits of people the kids admire (and available for a $50 donation to the Lower East Side Services Center), may give you pause as well.
