Students in Kansas University's Department of Art turned their annual ceramic and printmaking sale into a fundraiser for Leigh McHatton, an undergraduate student who was injured in the Boardwalk Apartments fire. The students raised about $900.
Associate professor of art Michael Krueger and the Intaglio Club, an organization of KU art students, recently held their annual sale.
Krueger, alumni and visiting artists also donated works.
This year, the students unanimously agreed to donate 20 percent of the funds from the sale to help McHatton. All profits from works donated by Krueger, alumni and visiting artists also went to the McHatton fund.
