A Closer Look at Chairs?

An intriguing exhibit at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, 4000 Michigan Road, Indianapolis, closes on 19 January. "More than Four Legs: A Closer Look at Chairs" is on view in the IMA's Star Studio. It's an installation by Carla Atwood Hartman that invites visitors to consider chair design as an art form.

Included are chairs designed by Hartman's grandparents, 20th Century design legends Charles and Ray Eames (that's their lounge chair and ottoman, pictured). See also this cool video.
