63 Chairs at the Red Hook Art Lot

The Art Lot in Red Hook (Brooklyn) has had this great installation up all summer. I only learned about it today.

It's by RISD alums Bill Hilgendorf (half of furniture makers Uhuru Design) and Maria Cristina Rueda. It is made up of discarded chairs they found on the sidewalk around Brooklyn on trash pickup days. (San men call that "mongo.")

Some find it unconscionably horrendous (philistines!!), but I love it.

The Art Lot is at Columbia and Sackett. [Map]

Happy weekend!
