Designers' comments: Making the bench was fun. I like it. We all did good and it was fun making it. I hope we can make another one.

What I think about our bench is real good. We tried our best doing the pictures. I think everybody's pictures was about summer.

It was awesome. I had a lot of fun.
I really like working on the bench. It was fun doing the bigger part all by myself. I like the quote on the back of the bench, "Out of the mouths of babes comes perfect praise."
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.
