Opening day: Friday, August 21 from noon to 7 p.m.

Explore with us during an exhibition that features one of the most practical pieces of furniture in history—a piece whose evolution over time has been less about function and more about fashion. Function and fashion collide in an out-of-the-box exhibition called THE CHAIR.

Each piece on loan from area residents and businesses allows you to notice a variety of distinctive design periods, bold and muted colors, sharp lines and smooth curves, lush fabrics, woods, and metals. As attractive as THE CHAIR may be, please do not sit.

Conversations with Myself
