Once again, it's time for the annual Red Chair Affair, the arts gala fundraiser held each August by the Red Chair Project, and the accompanying collection of creatively-decorated IKEA chairs donated for auction.
This year's shindig is on August 27th at the Bob Carr, and tickets are still available from $22 for General Admission up to $225 for VIPS. But you can see the chairs for yourself for free through August 21st in the Orlando Magic Gallery of downtown's CityArts Factory.
You can read my take on the exhibit, and the rest of last week's Third Thursday openings, in the next issue of the Orlando Weekly. In the meantime, here's a photo gallery featuring a few of my favorite Red Chairs that are currently on display.[gallery link="file" columns="2" orderby="title"]
