Michelle Levine

Michelle Levine, a New Orleans resident, found solace and relief from painting 40 realistic depicitions of McDonalds signs battered by Hurricane Katrina.

The golden arches-a symbol of American free enterprise and comfort food for children and adults alike-dotting the landscapes and serving as beacons along the highways were no longer open for business. Miles and miles of tattered and torn signs inspired Michelle to paint and paint.

She chose 40 desolate locations in the New Orleans and Gulf Coast area. Although she plans to keep the 40 original paintings intact with exhibits, she has produced a poster for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
