Big Chairs

Infrastructure or art? Located at the foot of 18th Street on the beach by the Seawalk, the Big Chairs might tempt you to sit and read. Or, you might see them as pensively gazing out to sea themselves. The chairs have been used for everything from sun-tanning to weddings and funerals, films, romantic trysts and fishing. They are first of many outdoor furniture pieces by Bill Pechet, who donated them to the municipality.
