At Home in Bronte, Muskoka Chair Public Art Exhibit 2019

Relax and Pull Up A Chair, Make Yourself At Home in Bronte 2019

It's time to sit on a Bronte Chair and enjoy the summer!

To respond to the strong demand from the community, the merchants of the Bronte Village BIA are pleased to once again present “At Home in Bronte”…. a public art display of custom decorated Muskoka Chairs. This project is an exhibit that engages the community to paint, admire, and rest by the lake on the chairs each summer.  

Seventy NEW chairs are coming back to Bronte Village and the Bronte Waterfront on June 20 for summer 2019!

Exhibit runs from June 20 to Thanksgiving!

Seventy colourful new chairs designed and painted by Oakville artists, families, organizations and businesses will make their debut again this year for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike.  

Relax and Pull Up A Chair, Make Yourself At Home in Bronte. The Bronte BIA invites you to make Bronte your summer destination in which to shop, dine, play, explore, or just relax and watch the boats and swans glide by. 

This project has been brought to you by the over 180 merchants of Bronte Village.

Testimonials from the past years:

“On a recent trip over from London UK to Bronte I noticed all the painted Muskoka chairs on the pier. I loved the vibrant colour and varied nature of their subjects and depicted causes. As I walked down the length of the pier I took a photo of each. Looking back at my trip it was something that stood out and I liked the look of them laid out in a grid. A new Bronte fan.”    –   Nico Engelbrecht

"Hi there hope you are enjoying a good summer.   Just wanted to say a huge thank you to whoever made the decision of the 66 Muskoka Chairs.   They are wonderful and are really appreciated. I saw a sign that explained about them,   but it says they are only there until Labour Day.  I think they should stay until Thanksgiving, give us all a good chance to enjoy them after the kids are back in school. Anyway Kudos for the way the waterfront looks this year.   It’s wonderful. –   Myra Davidson

"Just a quick note of congratulations!  Though a bit tardy, I must commend you on the lovely colourful chairs in and about the Harbour and butterfly gazebo.  This initiative has made the waterfront area much more inviting and engages visitors and residents alike. Thank you and the BIA for your efforts in enhancing this very beautiful part of Bronte and Oakville!  Well done!”     –   Susan Sheppard
