The “Find Your Art” Results

FRCH, Artswave, Find Your Art, Chair Challenge

Two weeks ago we kicked off our #FindYourArt Chair Challenge – where volunteers from each FRCH studio put their creative minds (and hands) to work to benefit ArtsWave, by reimagining their canvas: a chair. Each studio was given $25 and only two weeks to transform their chair, which are now available for eBay bidding through this Thursday, March 23 at 4:00 pm. Please share the eBay listings below with friends and family (but note that local pickup is required). 

100% of the proceeds will go towards our ArtsWave campaign so check out the links for additional photos and information to get your hands on some one-of-a-kind works of art! And special thanks to our sponsor, Dan Binford & Associates.

Cincinnati Chair | Large Format

Cincinnati Chair | Large Format

From the beginning, the goal was to make this chair relatable to the city of Cincinnati. With the chairs’ naturally wide canvas and slight curvature, the opportunity to celebrate our city’s beautiful skyline was the chosen design. We evoked basic design elements such as texture, color, and shape to execute our vision. We hope to see this chair find a loving home with someone as inspired by Cincinnati as we are!

Hustle & Fur Chair | Admin, HR, IT, Accounting, Marketing

Hustle & Fur Chair | Admin, HR, IT, Accounting, Marketing

The talent of painting was used to elevate the chair with leaves & flowers, and then, delicately adorned with grommets & the fur. Our goal was to have this inside chair be playful but truly an art piece that people would be complied to experience. “Hustle” is a cheeky contrast to the leaves & flowers.

Rolling Stones Chair | Specialty Retail Architecture

Starting with a red base chair, resembling a pair of lips or a mouth, the ideas began rolling; from Marylyn Monroe’s lips, Animal from The Muppets, the man-eating plant from The Rocky Horror Picture Show until finally it landed on The Rolling Stone mouth. With our budget and the time we had, it fit perfectly. Sewing, painting and craftsmanship were all melted together to create a redesigned chair, serving as a tribute to all the great music the Rolling Stone have given us.
