The Sit&Tell Project is a multi- participatory community project that uses the metaphor of a chair as an invitation for friendship and communication.
On World Storytelling Day, March 20, 2016. AIGA Toledo invited 100 storytellers who had benefitted from strong women in their lives to share their stories. The collection of stories was then interpreted by Toledo area graphic designers, painters, illustrators, and photographers who were carefully selected by a panel of experienced jurors. Their artwork was printed on graphic material and applied to 100 chairs provided by MTS Seating.
Groups of the artful chairs, along with a corresponding link to their story, were featured in rolling exhibitions around Toledo Neighborhoods between June and September 2016, with a closing exhibition featuring all 100 chairs at the Toledo Museum of Art in late September.
