Chairful Where You Sit, a one-day outdoor art installation and fundraiser for the Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture, traditionally coincides with Porchfest and takes place in a festive gathering at historic Uncle Sam Plaza, in the heart of the Arlington Center Cultural District.  An auction of artistically transformed chairs and other small furniture items rescued from basements and curbs has supported public art in in Arlington since 2012, and saved over 400 chairs from landfill.  New this year — we’re accepting artistically revamped small furniture items like side tables in addition to chairs!

Due to Covid-19, the event originally planned for June 7, 2020 has been postponed and re-envisioned as an online event. We continue to invite submissions to be displayed in an online auction format August 24 through September 7.

Everyone is invited to participate. Want to create furniture art for 2020 Chairful Where you Sit?  Read the Call for Artists FAQ for information to get started!
