Highway 8 chairs

This summer the Chisago Lakes Area Community Foundation sponsored a very unique fundraiser. Taylors Falls has its natural beauty; the Franconia Sculpture Park has its eclectic take on monumental art; this summer Chisago City, Lindstrom, Center City, and Shafer joined in to add to the artistic vibe along the Highway 8 corridor. Recently covered by Pioneer Press article 8/3/13.

The "Life is Great on Highway 8" promotion provided the opportunity to bid on and own one of 37 beautiful & thematically painted Adirondack chairs.

Sometime in the future someone is going to be asking the question - what is the story behind these chairs? 

Today's activity = tomorrow's history.
