Bench name: River Bend Pond/O'Nan's Bench Farm
Designer: Ellen Glasgow
Sponsor: Franklin County Homemaker's Garden Club
Location: Kroger East, Brighton Park
Designer's comments: A Franklin County farm was the subject of this large oil painting and seemed an appropriate image for my bench. Using computers, the image was enlarged and printed, then applied to the back.
The State Journal is publishing photos of the Capital Seats public art project. The Capital Seats public art project is a combined effort of Save the Grand Theatre, Inc., and the Capital Area Art Guild Inc., which have partnered to raise funds to renovate the Grand Theatre in downtown Frankfort into a local community arts center. The Capital Seats project also has been planned to promote the enjoyment of art in the community. On Oct. 9, Save the Grand Theatre, Inc., will reprise its highly successful "Grand Taste of Frankfort" event, at which time the benches will be auctioned to the public.
