Relax and Pull Up A Chair, Make Yourself At Home in Bronte 2018
The Muskoka Chairs are BAACK!
Due to overwhelming demand from residents and visitors last year, the At Home in Bronte, Perspectives & Reflections Public Art Exhibit is now back in Bronte Village on the Bronte Rd. Boardwalk and on the Pier in Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park.
This outdoor art exhibit, first launched July 1st at Oakville’s Canada Day 2017 struck a chord with its 67 uniquely designed Muskoka chairs, painted by Oakville artists, families, organizations and businesses. These colourful masterpieces were placed on the Bronte Boardwalk, in Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park and on the Pier for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike.
This year's 2018 exhibit of 63 chairs is now on display with wonderful 'masterpiece Muskoka' chairs painted by artist, BIA members, community groups and corporate groups. The exhibit is on display through Thanksgiving weekend. Pull Up A Chair - Make Yourself At Home in Bronte!

Testimonials from last year:
“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
