Call for Artists: Chairful Where You Sit 2019

Chairful Where You Sit is a temporary outdoor art installation  and fundraiser for Arlington Public Art featuring reimagined chairs. We invite you to find an old chair and creatively transform it. Images from previous years’ Chairful events.

This year’s event will take place on June 8 from 11 to 6 pm, concurrent with the ACA’s event, Porchfest, and will be held at Uncle Sam Plaza across from Whittemore Park in Arlington Center.

In keeping with Chairful’s commitment to upcycling orphan chairs, our theme this year is SUSTAINABILITY: FLORA AND FAUNA.

Adults and older teens. Ages 14 and under may participate only with an adult partner.  All entries will be accepted.

All chairs will be available for purchase by the public for a donation of $100 and will support Arlington Public Art’s programs. Artists may request a percentage of the  purchase price or may donate the full sale amount to APA.

Applications are $10 per chair.
