2 Great Cities, 1 Great University, Be a Tourist in Your Own Backyard! Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana, is home to the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette, where art abounds through sensational paintings, diverse pottery, contemporary prints and much, much more!
I recently visited the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette. I had not visited since I was a child and upon entering, the first exhibit that immediately caught my eye was this chair that had hundreds of little spikes shooting out from it. I was entranced by the sheer thought of sitting on it. It is called the "Phychic Heart" and I learned as I went through the gallery that they are hosting the "Chair-ity: Wild and Crazy Chairs" exhibit. There are so many amazing chairs. I was with friends and we all had different opinions on our top picks. Before we left we made sure to vote for our favorite chairs.
I also learned they are having a silent auction online where folks can bid to win a chair. Some of these chairs are pretty diverse and I think my husband would think I was crazy if I bid on one, but they are so fun and different. The auction runs through September 15. Check out these photos of some of my favorite chairs:
