Adirondack Chairs Re-Interpreted

May 22, 2012, Volume 58, No. 34


The Morris Arboretum and Woodmere Art Museum, located in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, are collaborating for the outdoor exhibition Take a Seat! Adirondack Chairs Re-Interpreted during the summer of 2012.

Artists were invited to re-interpret the Adirondack chair, to paint it, redecorate it, redesign it, re-carve it, reassemble it, or do something fabulous with one of America’s great outdoor classics. Seventy works of art, in chair form, are being showcased throughout the garden at Morris Arboretum and at Woodmere Art Museum.

The 40 artists chosen for the Morris Arboretum/Woodmere Take a Seat! Exhibition offer an impressive variety of disciplines and talent.

The Adirondack chairs are at the Morris Arboretum and Woodmere Art Museum now through Labor Day, September 3. A grand opening will take place at both institutions on Thursday, May 31 from 4 until 8 p.m.
