The Green Chair Project was started in 1991 by Joel Sisson and Chris Hand in South Minneapolis. With a crew of neighborhood teenagers they created 90 Adirondack lawn chairs for their neighbors.

A large version of the chair–weighing 2,500 pounds–was on display at the Walker Art Center and moved to North High Bridge Park in 1995. That original chair succumbed to the elements and untreated lumber and was replaced with the current chair in 2002.

At one time there were four over-sized chairs on display across the Twin Cities. Currently there is another chair by Lake Calhoun.

    Kevin – they used to have one at the IDS too. I am not sure if it is still there.

What do you think?
