3 cheers for chairs: $2,600 raised for art project

More than 30 artists helped make Chairful Where You Sit a success, as the effort raised over $2,600 for public art in Arlington.

Two hours after the fund raiser on the bikeway off Lake Street ended on Sunday, Aug. 12, organizer Adria Arch reported the results. The artists had donated their time and talent to create reimagined chairs that were on view from Aug. 5 through 12, among those at left

"We are well on our way to having our first project, a mural overlooking Spy Pond, funded," she wrote in an email to supporters.

She wrote that contribute may still be accepted. To make a donation to help the Spy Pond Mural Project, click here >>
