Fine Arts Week (May 19-23, 2014) showcased the talent of many West High School Students.  The week included daily presentations of theater, dance and music, open gallery nights highlighting visual art student's work in the The Colucci Gallery, the Art Department Pottery and Craft Sale, and the famous West Pottery Auction.  The West High Pottery Auction was started in 1972 by Ceramics teacher Don Hunt. On Friday of Fine Arts Week students sell their wares and donate a percentage of their earnings to the Art Department. In 42 years we have raised thousands of dollars that have purchased kilns and other equipment, along with funding our West Visual Arts Endowment Fund.
