Return to Other Works

Chairs on Parade, Tryon Center for Visual Art, Charlotte, NC.
(Temporary Public Art, Commissioned by the City of Charlotte).


Tryon Center for Visual Art, located in Uptown Charlotte, NC, has launched the largest public art event in Charlotte's history. Chairs On Parade will reinvent Chicago's world-renowned Cows on Parade exhibition. The Charlotte version will feature more than 100 oversized rocking chairs (5'8" tall x 4' wide) that have been interpreted and designed by acclaimed artists from throughout the Carolinas. Rocking chairs were chosen as the artists' canvas to reflect North Carolina's rich furniture heritage and the front porch traditions of the South. Through Sept., 2001, the chairs will adorn streets, parks and public spaces throughout the city.
