If you haven't been to IKEA for a couple weeks (shame on you! consumer credit spending is the only thing holding this economy together!), stop by this weekend to see the Red Chairs before they're gone.
43 child-sized chairs sit prominently at the top of the main escalator, each decorated by a different Orlando arts group. Some went all out: Bach Festival built a piano, IBEX Puppetry made a monster.
But no decorator is more dedicated than performance artist Brian Feldman, who is devoting 100 hours to sitting in the display, for all the Swede-ish shopping public to see.
The chairs are there during normal store hours through Monday August 4th. Brian will be there every day at 10am (11am on Sun), Lynx willing.
Stop by and bring him some (vegetarian) food, preferably something red.
Here's more info on Red Chair:
