Chautauqua + Cal-Wood

Community Art Project


September 10 – October 17, 2021

Chautauqua is excited to announce a community art project in partnership with Cal-Wood Education Center! Trees devastated by the Cal-Wood fire have been transformed into beautiful, hand-made benches by Cal-Wood staff and local artists have turned these benches into spectacular, one-of-a-kind art pieces for a special Chautauqua Art In The Park exhibit.

20 adult-size benches and 15 child-size benches will be auctioned to raise funds for participating artists, Chautauqua’s wildfire prevention efforts, and Cal-Wood’s ongoing wildfire recovery campaign.

The exhibit and virtual auction will be live from September 10 through October 17, the first anniversary of the Cal-Wood fire. Access the online auction here.

For more information, or if you are interested in sponsoring a bench, contact Director of Development Debbie Stewart at Bench sponsorships are $500 (sponsorship form). Please feel free to pass this along to anyone you know who might be interested in supporting this wonderful community event.

 And don’t forget to participate in our Art In The Park Photo Contest to win amazing Chautauqua prizes!

Thank you to our sponsors!
