Residents had the opportunity to take a very special seat Thursday at Bridge Communities’ “A Chair Affair” at Wentz Hall at North Central College in Naperville.
Twenty area artists transformed chairs, stools and benches for display in storefronts May 27 to June 11 in downtown Naperville. The public voted for their favorites online, and the excitement culminated this past week, when attendees enjoyed an open bar, hors d’oeuvres and silent and live auctions at Thursday’s event.
Proceeds from the chairs went to benefit homeless families in DuPage County assisted by Bridge Communities, which is based in Glen Ellyn.
The contributed art showcased a wide variety of styles and media.
