First Responder – Airbrush Art by Mickey Harris The First Responder Truck is a Chevy Silverado completely wrapped in the airbrush art of Mickey Harris. The display was held at the GM/UAW Summerfest, in Flint, Michigan, 2012. Both the hood and the rear cover are hydraulically lifted at timed intervals during the playing of Amazing Grace at concert volume levels. With the bed cover at full upright position, one can read the names of those who gave their lives trying to save others. Mickey has now completed numerous large vehicles, aircraft, building, and has art displayed in many museums, galleries, and several at the Pentagon.

  • First Responder - Tailgate
  • First Responder Tailgate and Cover The names of over 400 of the 9/11 first responders are included on the bed cover. The artist recounted that while at the Ground Zero display, an older woman, carrying shopping bags stopped and stood at the back of the vehicle, set her bags down, and reached up to touch the column of names. Naturally protective of the vehicle, he walked over to her to politely ask that she refrain from actually touching the images. As she looked up at the names, she said she could only reach out to the bottom of the column, on which her sons name was painted. This had a profound on Mickey, and that showed at the difficulty he had telling the story during the GM/UAW event. More than a few wiped away tears at that stories finish. Boasting a $30+ thousand dollar sound system, while Amazing Grace played at concert volume, the deck lid opened and positioned itself to allow viewers to better see and think about how each of these First Responders gave so much, so willingly.-Click anywhere to move to next page-

This window fragment was given to Mickey Harris by a First Responder and was part of his personal collection, but he felt this was the proper place for it. (Click to move to next image)
