Carlsbad Art Chair Unveiled

The City of Carlsbad Cultural Arts Office recently unveiled Carlsbad's newest temporary public art. The Carlsbad Art Beach Chair was installed in Carlsbad Village adjacent to the fountain on State Street. This oversized, vibrantly painted art piece was created and built by artist Michael Stutz and painted by local artist Ron Juncal. The artists were selected by an art committee comprised of community members, Arts Commissioners and city staff.

The Carlsbad Art Beach Chair is just the first in an ongoing project that will place one-of-a-kind painted chairs throughout Carlsbad, showcasing local artists and highlighting our diverse community.

Residents and visitors to Carlsbad Village have the opportunity to be a part of the art by taking a picture in the chair and tagging #CarlsbadArtChair on social media.
