A masterpiece from lint in Michigan

Laura Bell's Lint Last Supper (photo courtesy of Ripley's Believe It or Not!)

Our friends at NPR just published a great story about a woman in Michigan who has recreated a version of  Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper out of lint from her dryer. Ok, so it’s not as big as the original mural, but it is 14 feet long. Out of lint. From her dryer.

The woman, Laura Bell, is a home health aide from Roscommon, Michigan, and here’s her work, which Ripley’s Believe or It has bought to add to their collection of Lint Art. (Who knew they had an entire collection?)

Leonardo da Vinci's original

According to the NPR story, Bell said she started the piece for ArtPrize. That’s the annual Grand Rapids art competition that we’ve written about in the past (if you want see that story, here it is.)

ArtPrize founder Rick DeVos is an upcoming guest on our podcast, so tune in soon to hear more about his thoughts for the region. In the meantime, here’s the original AP story about Bell.
