      On the Edge of Your Seat: Chairs for the 21st Century
    • Saturday, July 23, 2016
    • In May 2016, The Center for Art in Wood, in partnership with The Furniture Society, will mount an exhibition of chairs, benches, and stools for the 21st century. On view will be sculptural, conceptual, functional (and the occasional dysfunctional) seating, reflecting the dramatic evolution from the storied history of chairmaking in Philadelphia. The Center and the Society issued an international call to artists in early 2015 and received a gratifying response - 251 entries from 147 artists.
