'Chairful Where You Sit' Display Begins Sunday

The project is the first temporary art installation on the bike path in Arlington.

The following is from Arlington Public Art.

"Chairful Where You Sit" is the first temporary art installation on the Minuteman Bike Path in Arlington. Organized by artist Adria Arch to bring visibility to the new town effort toward more public art, this installation will be on view from Sunday, Aug. 5, through Sunday Aug. 12.

Thirty artists, mostly from Arlington, and including ones from Brooklyn, Jamaica Plain and East Boston, have painted old wooden or metal chairs to give them a new life as an art project.

Each chair is available for purchase, and the sale price of $100 per chair will go toward the funding of the Spy Pond Mural, featuring artwork by four students.

Arlington Public Art is a new town committee whose mission is to bring awareness of the value of public art to Arlington, and to support the creation and funding of public art in our town.
