It’s been an off-and-on project through the years for MHS art teacher Karen Podd—with her students taking chairs, tables and other pieces of small furniture and converting them to one-of-a-kind works of art, inspired by a variety of masterpieces.
On Memorial Day weekend, in conjunction with the student production of "I Hate Shakespeare," the art students will be holding a silent auction for each of the 26 items, with the winners announced following Saturday night’s performance. The pieces will also be on display before, during and after Friday night’s show; but bids will only be accepted on Saturday. Those attending Friday’s show are encouraged to stop back by to place a bid the following evening.
The Mathews High School Stage and School Class will present the large-cast comedy at 6:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, May 24 and 25. Admission is $5 at the door.
