DAMS LMC Chair Auction – call for artists!

DAMS-LMC-chairThe DeForest Area Middle School 7/8 Library is in the midst of an exciting renovation that will bring student resources, access, and library furnishing up-to-date. As part of this renovation, the current wood library chairs will be retired. It was decided that offering them for sale to the public would be a good idea, but offering them to sale as works of art would be an even better idea.

“Chair auctions have been successful fundraising events in many communities,” said middle school librarian Laura Shucha. “We are hoping for a wonderful contingent of creative local artists to transform these chairs. We are also looking forward to sharing these chairs with the public, fostering some spirited competition to win each chair via a silent auction.” All funds raised will be put toward the purchase of furnishings for the 7/8 Library.

Call for Artists!
Consider contributing your talents to the library fundraising event, and help spread the word!  Artists must be current high school students or older.
