A work of art was created in Chicago Monday to honor a group of volunteers.

Chicago Cares invited people to leave their handprint on a super-sized canvass.

People put on plastic gloves and dipped their hands in paint... leave their handprint on the 12-foot-by-12-foot canvas.

On June 11, 6,000 volunteers will paint, landscape and spruce up Chicago Public Schools.
