Michael Jackson’s Kids Unveil His Artwork At Children’s Hospital. 08-08-'11

Prince, 14, Paris, 13, and Blanket, 9, signed their names alongside their father’s signature on some of the artwork.

“You look at this, it makes you happy,” Jackson’s sister, LaToya, said during a ceremony at the hospital. “They’re whimsical, they’re magical and there’s just joy and peace. I know that when you see this and the kids see it, it will bring some type of joy to them, and at the same time I know it will bring joy to my brother as well.”

She said Jackson would appreciate the artwork being placed in “a hospital like this that will help children and people everywhere.”

The artwork was donated from the private collection of Brett Livingstone Strong, an artist and friend of the Jackson family.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Jackson’s mother, Katherine, were also on hand for the event.

Mary Hart, a hospital trustee who helped arrange the donation with her husband, Burt Sugarman, hailed the presentation of the artwork, which will be displayed around the hospital’s new building.

"To have the Jackson family here, to show a side of Michael Jackson here at the Children's Hospital that the world is totally unfamiliar with, is incredibly exciting," said Hart.

Michael Jackson's family said he would be thrilled with this special gift to Children's Hospital, given his love for children.

"I know that Michael wouldn't want his art in a better place than a hospital like this that would help children and people everywhere," said LaToya Jackson.

Hospital officials said that the artwork will hang throughout the new Children's Hospital in Los Angeles.
