From Where I Sit: Permanent Collection Seating

Exhibition dates: September 18, 2020 - February 20, 2021
Online Exhibition

Seating furniture takes many shapes and forms, yet the core purpose remains the same: to support the body in a sitting pose. From Where I Sit: Permanent Collection Seating features over twenty examples of seating—chairs, benches, and one stool—all from Fuller Craft Museum’s permanent collection. Collected over a thirty-year span, the works emphasize craftsmanship, ingenuity, and the profound expressive potential of the humble seat.
