Take A Seat, Benches around Vienna

Among the events planned is an auction of hand painted benches.  That is wooden benches painted by individual artists or cooperative artists sponsored by our Vienna community of business people and merchants.  The project is adopted from a similar one done by artist in Purceville, VA.  VAS artists should be thinking about their preliminary sketches for their bench now. VAS-TakeASeat-Flyer available here.
