Here’s your chance to get to know Library Director Ryan Livergood in a new light, and learn about a fantastic interactive art installation coming to Arlington. The creative, community-minded folks running the 2013 Chairful Where You Sit exhibit interviewed Ryan for their blog. Read the interview here, and find out which artistic pursuits he gave up to become a librarian. Also, what’s his favorite museum/arts organization to visit in the greater Boston area? It’s in there!
This year’s installation will take place during the week of July 21 – July 28, 2013. The interactive angle? This is an art installation that you’re actually encouraged to sit on.

All chairs will be available for purchase by the public for a donation of at least $100 and will support Arlington Public Art’s future events. A selection of chairs will be auctioned on eBay. Artists may request 50% of the purchase price or may donate the full sale amount to APA.
