Arts Alive presents “A Chair Affair Fundraiser”

Arts Alive is seeking artists to transform chairs into art pieces!

The Concept: Individuals and businesses are asked to find a chair and upcycle, recreate, embellish and turn into something amazing! Theme it any way you want! Your creation(s) will then be placed in an art installation in the Tibbits Art Gallery, 14 S. Hanchett St. in Coldwater, and listed online to be sold in a silent auction. All proceeds will benefit Arts Alive for the continued promotion of community art events, exhibits and arts education within Branch County.

Cost is $10 Per Entry; Limit 3 entries per person. People’s choice cash prizes awarded to entries with the highest bids.
