Public Art Program - Adirondack Chairs, New in 2020
In late 2019, The City invited qualified professional artists and high school student artists to submit designs for Dublin’s latest temporary Public Art project, decorated Adirondack Chairs.
Temporary art displays are a great way to bring public art to City streets, defining neighborhoods and deterring graffiti. Our last public art project, painted utility boxes, was extremely successful and enjoyed by residents and visitors to Dublin alike.
In our new project, 20 Adirondack chairs were awarded to 18 different artists based on design. The artists were given the option to submit a design for one chair or a set of two chairs. The City Council selected the theme, “New American Backyard,” for the artwork.
The completed chairs will make their first appearance at the City of Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Day Festival, March 14-15, 2020. The Adirondack chairs will then be on display at select businesses, parks, and events throughout Dublin, March through September 2020. Come out and see them all. Make sure to take note of the chair or chairs that you like best, as all of the chairs will be sold at an auction during a City fall event. Proceeds will benefit the City’s Public Art Program.
