Colorado Springs artist Sean O'Meallie and theBusiness of Art Center
put on a once-in-a-lifetime show last October, when they brought theManitou Chair Project
--a 600-chair conga line down the middle of the main drag in Manitou Springs at sunrise
-- to fruition. We liked it so much we named it one of our favoriteFifteen Arts Events of 2012
, and apparently they did, too. Because while the chairs are gone, the show goes on in Manitou.
Now the organizers are turning the chair theme over to artists everywhere with the Big Chair Project Art Show, set to open at BAC on March 2. A call for entries is out, asking for either Chair Project-inspired art or any kind of art-on-a-chair. Here's the come-on:
Make a chair, Paint a chair, Draw a chair, Sculpt a chair, Photograph a chair, Write about a chair, Act with a chair, Play music in a chair, Dance with a chair, Sing about a chair, create a chair Video, or just be creative with the idea of a chair!
