KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - The chance to snag a piece of Kearney High School history is coming next month.

Fifteen murals from the school will be put up in a silent auction at the annual C.L.A.S.S. Act fundraiser for Kearney Public Schools. Opening bids for the murals have not yet been determined, the Kearney Hub reported (https://bit.ly/1nXB8IP ) Saturday.

“I don’t like to put a price on them,” KHS art teacher Linda McFadden said. “Of course, I think they’re priceless.”

The murals were created by KHS students beginning in 1986. They offer a variety of original pieces and replicas of famous art.

McFadden said people in the community have shown great interest in the auction and been supportive of selling the pieces.

Parting with the murals has been emotional, McFadden said. Other works of art in the school will be moved over to the new high school later this year.

School district leaders are mulling the fate of the current Kearney High School, set to be replaced by a new high school in the fall.

Those interested, but unable to attend the event, can place a maximum bid with C.L.A.S.S. Act before the auction.

In addition to the 15 murals, 170 items will be featured in the live auction.

C.L.A.S.S. Act will begin at 6 p.m. April 9 at Younes Conference Center. Tickets to the event are $75.
