The Art of Seating Educator Guide
In Telfair Museums' Art of Seating we have a clear example of how objects themselves can tell stories. Chairs, perhaps better than any one object, can truly capture the essence of design. A cultural universal, like shelter or clothing, seating embodies the culture or style from which it came. In this collection of over 40 examples of chairs we have a prime opportunity to compare and contrast the varying forces that produced them, whether cultural, geographic or artistic.
