To foster arts appreciation and provide additional seating in the Children’s Museum, we are pleased to announce the second year of our public art project, Sweet Seats. The program invites up to 10 local professional or amateur artists to embellish handcrafted wooden benches constructed by Kiwanis of the Carolinas, which will be placed throughout the museum for one year. These imaginative, kid and family-friendly designs reflect our 18 permanent exhibits through theme and design. The benches will provide needed respite and wonderful art work created by local artisans for our 100,000 annual visitors to enjoy.
You can own a small piece of the Children’s Museum by bidding on a “Sweet Seat” during the Chocolate Soiree. Ten benches will be auctioned off for naming rights to be used in the Museum for a year. After a year of service, bench sponsors are invited to donate their bench to the school, community center, church or park of their choosing.
