Pop-Up Chair in Detroit, Michigan

Detroit Installation 2_small Off of Michigan Avenue, near the famous Michigan Central Train Station, the Old Timer Chairs hang where a new art and community space is growing. I remembered how much easier it is to install art when there are two sets of hands! It was a windy day, and the wind whipped the chair making it an unruly piece.
