Preview: Chaircuterie's Furniture-Inspired Art

On Thursday, November 13, the American Institute of Graphic Arts Colorado and the Denver Art Museum Design Council will host Chaircuterie, a celebration of design and a fundraiser for AIGA's mentorship and scholarship programs and the Denver Art Museum's Department of Architecture, Design and Graphics. More than a hundred chair-inspired works will be showcased and auctioned off during the event; the collection, created by such local and national artists and designers as Ethan Hutchinson, Mike Giant and Mario Zoots, includes functional furniture as well as sculptural works and two-dimensional pieces.

In advance of the party, here's a preview of some of the pieces that will be up for auction tomorrow evening at the McNichols Building:
