Benches on the Avenue 2014
Hello again all! Well another year has come and gone and I was selected once more for the Benches on the Avenue 2014 project for the community of Tinley Park. This year's theme was "Let the Games Begin!" I submitted the idea of doing a Mario Brothers Bench and was thrilled when they accepted my design. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the project, each year Tinley Park chooses 20 artists from all around the Chicagoland area construct benches that fit a theme for that year. On May 1st the benches are installed up and down Tinley's historic Oak Park Avenue in the middle of the Village's shopping and entertainment district. The benches remain there until October 1st when they are returned to their sponsors or donated to the community. Here are some pictures of this year's bench. And check out my previous posts for last year's bench!
