Community Art Project

COMMUNITY ART PROJECT – A FRIENDS OF PRITZKER CREATION

In 2008, Community Art Project was created.  This fundraiser celebrates our tradition of the arts with an opportunity for students to collaborate with artists to produce art, which is displayed in the local retail community and then set for auction.

  • Dozens of professional artists participate donate unique pieces to be auctioned
  • Hundreds of students create individual and classroom masterpieces by working with professional artists
  • Local retailers create a community art gallery
  • The finale:  an evening cocktail party and auction with live music — a unique urban art event not to be missed!

VISITING ARTIST WEEK

We bring professional artists to the classroom exposing our students to the careers in art, graphics, animation and architecture.
