The Great Chair Challenge

Event Date: 
Saturday, January 5, 2013 to Sunday, January 20, 2013
W-16 - McGuireWoods Gallery

Public Opening Reception: Saturday, January 5, 1-5pm
The Workhouse Arts Center and the Northern Virginia Community College’s Interior Design Club are partnering to present a unique exhibition of artfully redesigned chairs. 

The Great Chair Challenge will challenge NVCC interior design students to not only think outside of the box, but to be aware of how their design decisions affect their community and environment. Participants will be charged with recycling a discarded chair into a rehabilitated chair or art piece. Judging and a brief talk by the judges will take place during the opening reception. Following the talk, a silent auction will be held for participants and event guests to bid on all chairs.  Starting bids will be $20 and proceeds will support the Interior Design Club activities.
