ABOUT THE EXHIBITION The Art of Seating: Two Hundred Years of American Design provides audiences with a unique opportunity to see chair types that usually reside in private homes, withheld from public display. The American Chair Collection is a comprehensive private collection of iconic and historic chairs reaching back from the mid-1800s to pieces from today's studio movement. The exhibition provides an opportunity to see readily recognizable pieces alongside those rarely seen by the public. Click here to learn more about the exhibition.

EXHIBITION SPECIAL FEATURE Chairs from the LSU Museum of Art permanent collection will expand the period of chair design even farther back in history to the 18th century’s Rococo and Baroque designs.
