This exhibit follows that sentiment, offering ingeniously designed chairs of all sizes. Artists have created newly made functional seating as well as non-functional miniatures, repurposed chairs and whimsical interpretations of the form.Works in this exhibit are constructed from a wide range of materials including forged iron and steel, wood, sheet metal, felted wool, wire, natural vines and bark, clay, leather, acrylic, tree branches, recycled bourbon barrels, recycled Altoid boxes, as well as a variety of repurposed chairs that are sure to make this exhibit a favorite for visitors.

This exhibit also includes a focus on the history of pottery in Kentucky and the region, as well as current production centers and current clay programs at colleges and universities throughout the state.
