Gallery 114 - Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder Exhibit
Thanks to a grant from the EFW, Wauwatosa West is home to Gallery 114, a gallery featuring artwork and writing submitted by Wauwatosa West students. While art teacher, Jessica Belich, is the force behind the creation of the gallery, she says it is now run by the students. Senior Isaac Micheal is the gallery director and junior Maureen Vento is the gallery assistant. In addition to creating a space to showcase the talents of Wauwatosa West students, Gallery 114 was developed as a way to give real world work experience in managing the activities of an art gallery.
The latest exhibit is "Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder" featuring works which show us what the artist find beautiful. The exhibit may include short stories and poetry. The show runs from November 29, 2012 - January 3, 2013.
Gallery 114 is located in the library on the east side of the Steiner Center and is open to the public weekdays from 7:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. If you'd like to visit during school hours (8:00 a.m. - 3:10 p.m.) please enter through the attendance office, sign in, and obtain a pass.
More About Wauwatosa West High School
West High School celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2011, yet it is still considered the "new" high school in Wauwatosa, compared to old-line East High. West benefits, though, from its more modern surroundings, as it has its own planetarium and the unique Thomas Steiner Technology Center, named for a former principal and equipped with tools and resources for students to do advanced research.
