Melvin Slavick has created beautiful pieces of art: sculptures of well-known people's hands; fully cast in marble stone. These sculptures will go on a year-long tour around the U.S. for free viewing at museums, colleges and shopping malls. "Helping Hands of America" will conclude with a public auction, the proceeds going to each of the celebrity's chosen charity. The tour is scheduled to begin in early 1998.
The 3 celebrities pictured above have asked that the funds raised from their hands should go to:
The Covenant House (Whoopi Goldberg)
Pediatric AIDS Foundation (Mel Gibson)
Hereditary Disease Foundation (Carol Burnett)
Soon, The New Sun will name 3 more people and their charities. Stay tuned for ongoing coverage.
