Izabela Quintas, 12, paints fire hydrant for city display
September 5, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A 12-year-old Chicago girl finds inspiration in her mother's battle against breast cancer and now her work will be part of a citywide art exhibit.
Izabela Quintas painted a hydrant for the Great Chicago Fire Hydrants exhibition. One hundred and one of them will go on display September 11 in celebration of Chicago's firefighters.
Quintas is the youngest artist to be part of the exhibit. She says her mother inspires her to keep going. Now her hard work has paid off.
"I love it, I think it's perfect. I think every little detail I put into it is my hardest, best work and I love it," said Izabela.
Izabela's hydrant and all the others will be auctioned off in November with the proceeds going to charity.
