MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Lake Superior Art Association is seeking artists and sponsors for this summer’s “Chairs with a View” project.

Cedar River Rustic Furniture has built Adirondack chairs, which the Art Association plans to place along Marquette’s Lower Harbor water front.

That will happen during Art Week, which runs from June 20-25.

The goal is for 24 chairs to be painted by local artists, which can be sponsored by individuals, businesses or organizations.

“Adirondack chairs are very comfortable,” said Lynn Buckland-Brown, coordinator of the “Chairs with a View” project. “They’re a higher seat in the back. They have nice arm support, so you can come down, sit down, have a cup of coffee and just sit back and enjoy the view of Lake Superior.”

The cost to sponsor a chair is $325 and the artist application deadline is Friday, March 18th.
