If you have an emotional reaction to art, then you're on the right blog. If you have an emotional reaction to chairs, then you've hit 30. Congratulations to both. Now let's celebrate by peeking into Saturday's Chair Art in the Park event happening at Klyde Warren.
The event auctions off art chairs that were either made, designed or embellished by local 6th to 12th graders. The money brought in is then handed over to the Dallas Children's Advocacy Center, a non-profit that provides art and music therapy for abused children. It's a great event, and a good excuse to wander in front of the ice cream sandwich truck.
The silent auction runs from 11:00 a.m. to 5:15 p.m., but the real action happens during the live auction and awards ceremony, from 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. So be a stand-up human, and sit down.
