STAMFORD, CT - The forty wooden benches will be positioned in their new place of residence in Stamford Downtown for the summer of 2014. These benches are part of the DSSD’s outdoor summer sculpture exhibit, Point72 Asset Management presents Street Seats in Stamford Downtown. Thanks to the talent of 33 artists who have magically transformed wooden benches into works of art full of creativity and humor, 40 originally designed and painted wooden benches on will be on display on the streets and parks of Stamford Downtown. Upon completion of the exhibit, the benches will be auctioned. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Curtain Call and The Palace.

Installation will begin on Monday, June 2 and will continue through Wednesday, June 4 from 5 am to 9 am. It will take the city traffic division team, Stamford Downtown operations Events Team, two fork-lifts and a loader truck to install them. Their installation is an event in itself and is more than likely to draw a crowd with very curious onlookers as each piece is hoisted from the holding area and transported via an open-air truck to its location amid ongoing activity. A list of the benches is attached.

Street Seats in Stamford Downtown benches are certainly bound to make a grand appearance on the Streets and in the parks of Downtown and in the Stamford Town Center! Street Seats in Stamford Downtown runs June through August.

On June 10, Stamford Downtown will host an opening reception for Street Seats in Stamford Downtown, the official kickoff celebration and viewing for sponsors and the public at the Stamford Marriott. For tickets to the opening reception and a map of locations and more information about Street Seats in Stamford Downtown, Art in Public Places 2014, please call 203-348-5285 or visit
