Back by popular demand, reCYCLE Please Sit on the Art. For 2014, Seats (chairs, benches, thrones, pews, stools etc.) are the theme again- anything to encourage resting, day-dreaming and re-energizing to continue to explore the Old Takoma area and its businesses. Artists are asked to create imaginative Seats, made from repurposed or recycled materials, which will be installed in small clusters—creating little sitting areas along the sidewalks of Old Takoma. Some of the Seats may also be placed inside area businesses to further encourage exploration of Old Takoma businesses. Existing Seats may be re-interpreted with paint or other embellishments or new forms of seating may be created from fabricating other materials into seating. The Seats will remain in place from June 2014 to October 2014 and then be auctioned off to the public.
Applications due April 3rd.
