Eighth grader Michelle Barnett has created artwork that will be displayed at the presidential debate at Hofstra University in October. Her creation, an artistic depiction of the word "dream," was chosen from among entries across Long Island and will be on display for all the attendees to see as part of the Expressions of Democracy 2012 exhibit, called "Social Realism." Michelle said she feels honored to be able to participate. "I was really surprised to find out that my piece was chosen for the art show," she said. "It's really overwhelming to know that I am going to be a part of such a historic event."
