Tuesday, May 24, 1988 to Sunday, September 18, 1988

The 30 chairs on display in the garden of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum are the creation of thirty artists, architects, and furniture designers from the San Francisco area, who were invited to explore the theme of outdoor seating. These sculptural seats are made from a variety of materials, including steel, wire, mesh, aluminum, galvanized hardware, glass crates, and tree branches. Visitors are encouraged to sit on the exhibits!
