M&M's Make Paint for Inmate
Imagination equals freedom, even behind bars. Donny Johnson, who's serving three life sentences in Pelican Bay Prison, made paintings out of M&M dye and a paintbrush made of his own hair. He sold two of them for $500 each, until he was reprimanded by officials who will no longer allow him to mail the paintings to the host gallery. The money was being donated to charity.
