Chairful Where You Sit 2018

THIS JUST IN! Design a FAIRY CHAIR for Chairful!

The latest addition to Chairful Where You Sit 2018 will be an exhibition of Fairy Chairs! Artbeat, the Creativity Store in Capitol Square will host a window full of miniature chairs designed by YOU!

If you'd like to participate in Chairful but don't have the time to do a full sized chair, we'd love to offer you the opportunity to paint/decorate one of these little chairs. Just sign up for Chairful online or mail your registration fee of $10 according to the directions. The chairs will be included in your registration fee, so all you need to do is go over to Artbeat and pick out your little fairy chair.

The chairs will be exhibited in Artbeat's window starting the week of June 12. The decorated chairs will be available for a donation of $40 as part of Arlington Public Art's annual fundraiser, Chairful Where You Sit, and will help to support public art programming in town, like the colorful transformer boxes, the Fox Festival, and Pathways, art on the Minuteman bikeway.

Chairful Where You Sit, now in its sixth year, is a community art project and fundraiser for Arlington Public Art, a subcommittee of the Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture. We invite you to find an old chair destined for the trash or stashed in your basement or attic, then reinvent it with creativity! Visit our blog to see examples of past years' entries.

Over the past five Chairful exhibitions, we estimate that we've saved about 300 chairs from the trash, and we've made many people grateful and happy to have an original, one of a kind chair for their home.

This year, we'll be part of Capitol Square's annual Feast of the East on Massachusetts Ave., Saturday June 16 from 12 to 4 pm.

Funds raised will help to pay for Arlington Public Art's programs and projects,helping to make Arlington an exciting and beautiful town to live in.
