The Farnsworth Art Museum, in Rockland, Maine and the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine, announce a collaborative design competition and exhibition. The challenge, which goes out to all Maine artisans and artists, is to design benches for the museum's galleries. Completed versions of the top 18 design entries will be exhibited at the Center's Messler Gallery from January 18-April 3, 2013. The Farnsworth will then make a select number of purchase awards from the exhibition to furnish its galleries.
The deadline for entries is August 1, 2012. Any material or combination of materials is permissible, and seating must be sufficiently moveable to accommodate flexible use within the museum's galleries. Individual units can be designed to seat anywhere from 2-5 people and must be available for the Farnsworth to purchase at a retail price not to exceed $3,300. Submissions may consist of images of completed work, prototypes, models or renderings.
