Puffer student council to host its first-ever Community Art Fair

DOWNERS GROVE – The Henry Puffer student council will host the school’s first-ever Community Art Fair from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday.

The fair will benefit two charitable organizations, and the public is invited to attend.

The entire school has been contributing milk jug lids for two large-scale murals since December, and the student council began assembling the murals earlier this month, according to a press release. Art teacher Sarah David sketched the designs, and the students added the multi-colored lids with help from student council sponsor Katie Hurckes.

The murals will be auctioned off during the art fair. Additionally, each student created pendants that will be on sale at the Fair, along with pieces by the photography and cartooning clubs.

Anyone who is unable to attend but would like to submit a bid for the mural or purchase a pendant or piece of art can e-mail Hurckes at

All funds raised at the Fair will be split between the West Suburban Humane Society and the World Wildlife Fund.
