Artwork is based on a different theme each year, and benches are on display from mid-May through October. Each bench is sponsored by a local business or individual, who takes possession of it after the program has ended.
2020 Benches on the Avenue: Around the World
The Village is hosting its 17th annual Benches on the Avenue program from May to October in Downtown Tinley. The theme is “Around the World” and feature imaginative, three-dimensional works that depict some of the most explored and fascinating travel destinations, vacation spots and/or iconic landmarks.
The Village is seeking artists to participate in this wonderful public art program. All you have to do is fill out the application form and submit it by January 31, 2020 with your design for review. If you have any questions, please contact Joanne Carroll at firstname.lastname@example.org or 708-444-5031.
The Benches on the Avenue is a perfect opportunity to market your business or organization to residents and visitors throughout the summer season. Each bench sponsor will receive a plaque recognizing your company affixed to the bench; your business information will be included in the widely distributed bench brochure; and will be featured on the Village's website and Facebook page.
Benches will be sold on a first-come, first-choice basis. Reserve your bench by completing the order form and returning it with your check to the Village Hall.
