Artist Chuck Close mentors Bridgeport elementary school students

An unusual art exhibit opened in Bridgeport, Connecticut last night. It features the work of world-renowned painter Chuck Close. And next to his paintings hang the work of Bridgeport elementary school students. The exhibit comes out of a collaboration Close has had with a Bridgeport school, as part of a the national Turnaround Arts Initiative to bring art to disadvantaged kids.
