Here’s a sneak peek at one of the chairs, designed by Whitney Volker, a 2002 DAHS graduate.
Whitney majored in studio art from Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa. Her current work has been focused around cityscape recycled paper collages. Her chair uses vibrant colors to depict a Madison capital summer cityscape with recycled paper.
The online auction will be available for two weeks, August 29 to September 10. All chairs will be on display on Monday, August 29 during the middle school’s Backpack Night, and again on Saturday, September 10 at the 7th annual Yahara Riverfest at Conservancy Commons Park. Individual chairs will be on display at local businesses throughout the community before the auction begins, August 15-26. We will also post photos of all chairs on the DASD Facebook page throughout August.
