Downtown art project named: Sunny & Chair Tour

After sifting through more than 200 entries, the Downtown Racine Corporation has chosen a name for this year's summer art project, which will place dozens of artist-decorated Adirondack chairs throughout downtown.

Welcome to the Sunny & Chair ... Summer '09 Tour!

The winning name was submitted by Regan and Dana Goodsell, owners of Elegant Pauper, who will receive a $50 Downtown gift certificate. A variation was submitted by Lloyd Miller of Racine, who will receive a $25 certificate.

This is the 8th year of public art Downtown. The Adirondack chairs will be displayed from early June through Labor Day. In September, a public auction will be held.

Chair sponsors are being sought; the cost is $375. Information is available at the DRC office at 425 Main St., and online.
