One response to “It’s Red Chair time (does that mean it’s almost fall?)

  1. I think people will find the Orange County Arts & Cultural Affair’s PUBLIC ART Red Chair package to be very fun. It includes a customized public art party/tour with food and beverages for 12 and a unique and beautiful book, THE RED CHAIR VISITS ORANGE COUNTY PUBLIC ART with great photos of over 30 sculptures and artworks in public . . . AND each photo by a different photographic artist includes a red chair in some creative way. There is only one of these books available to the public. Bid now! Bid often!
