The Spokane Public Schools Foundation will hold its annual Rockin’ Art fundraiser Friday. Works of art created by students, teachers and local artists are on display and up for purchase.

A silent auction features art created by select elementary, middle and high school students, and a live auction will feature five pieces.

The Spokane Public Schools Foundation was founded in 2006. It awards grants to the district’s nearly 30,000 students, as well as to principals, teachers and school projects.

In the past, grants have been given to Roosevelt Elementary School’s Family/School Reading Partners, Libby Center’s hydrogen fuel cell project and Sheridan Elementary School’s therapy dog program, among many other projects.

The foundation also provides some funding for the annual band and strings concert.

The evening also features local rock band The 8 Tracks and a no-host bar.
