Design Museum Boston’s Street Seats


As we’ve pointed out before through Adam O’day’s amazing art and ArtBarrier, we love seeing art and the city collide. There’s something so inspirational about creative minds putting their work out on display for all pedestrians to see.

This spring, Design Museum Boston will unveil twenty semi-finalist benches and the selection of three finalists in the culmination of their international design competition, Street Seats. As city art often is, this is meant for you to enjoy – by looking at, by sitting on and enjoying the view. You can also participate by voting for your favorite bench in the People’s Choice cash prize category.  To view entries, bench progress, and judges (including Tom Ashbrook and Ming Tsai), be sure to check out Design Museum Boston online. We’re pretty blown away by the creativity and talent.

If you are in the Boston Harborwalk area on the afternoon of April 27, be sure to check out the Opening Celebration of the Street Seats, which is free and open to the public. Be sure to visit Design Museum Boston online for additional details.
