Fine Arts Week showcases the talents of hundreds of West High School students! This celebration usually includes Gallery Nights, which highlights the work of our visual arts students, and daily presentations of theater, dance and music. The week closes with the Art Department Craft Sale, and the famous West Pottery Auction!
As you know this is an unusual year at West, and we are not currently certain which arts events might be possible. What is certain is that many other traditional fundraisers have not been possible, and so it is even more important for us to use this opportunity to support our students.
In a typical year the plant sale supports Fine Arts Week and helps to fund arts opportunities at West, including purchase of a pottery kiln, support of Anthony Cao’s hip hop class, and administrative help. The Blooming Artists Plant Sale has traditionally been a significant source of funds for this support. We want to grow this initiative to reach more arts students and to highlight our local partner, Deerfield Greenhouse: Deerfield Greenhouse & Floral - Home | Facebook
In addition to beautiful bedding plants, Deerfield Greenhouse is known for its peppers (jalapeño, habanero, cayenne sweet mini-reds, banana pepper and Caribbean red-hots) and donut peaches. If you are unsure what to buy (for yourself or someone else), gift certificates are available! These can be redeemed all summer long at the Deerfield Greenhouse stand at the Dane County Farmers’ Market, for an expanded set of plants and produce.
