The B bus stopped by the Dallin House in the Center this evening just in time to catch Chairful Where You Sit, Arlington’s new-ish annual public art happening. An artful end to a fun afternoon with pal Livia, and the 3 girls danced briefly on the tracks when we discovered all the chairs.
Two of our good friends had submitted seats (chair or stool), along with 70 or so other local artists and craftsfolk. We were sad we didn’t get to see Amy and Allison’s winning chairs, but thrilled for both of them that they did so well and had already been sold — to benefit Arlington Public Art, of course!
This photo is by GHB, who especially liked this chair’s playful giant squid menacing a schooner.
Who knows what Sam Whittemore would have thought of all this? The Tumblr site has pictures of all the chairs — some are quite magnificent!
