Ceremony for new art project to be held today at Foothill High

'Uncontained Potential' honors school's 40th anniversary,

A dedication ceremony for a 3-year collaborative art project designed by Foothill High School art teacher Nancy Scotto will be held at 2 p.m. today in room C6 at the school.

Caroline Fields, another Foothill art teacher, worked with Scotto to create "Uncontained Potential" which includes three 7-foot vessels with a mosaic of student-created words and letters flowing from one of the vessels.

More that 800 Foothill students came up with words that represented their goals for education.

The vessels are metaphors of the students themselves, and are used as a reminder of their educational journey.

Donor bricks are available for purchase, and the bricks will be used in the walkway leading to the artwork.

Bricks are $150 each for up to three lines with 15 characters (including spaces) per line. A limited number of bricks will be sold. Bricks can be purchased online or by mailing in an order form.

"Uncontained Potential" was installed for Foothill's 40th Anniversary, and was funded in part by the 2012-13 Parent Teacher Organization and private donations.

The dedication ceremony will be followed by the end-of-year Flock Party which will have food trucks, club booths and carnival-style games. Everyone is encouraged to wear 70s style outfits, representing the decade Foothill opened.
