After School Matters Bench Project, Chicago, Illinois

During our travels we ran across this inspiring bench project in Chicago. Several benches were hand-painted and sculpted by teenagers in gallery37, a program of After School Matters, which employs teenagers both during the summer and after school, working with professional artists, teens created unique pieces of art while also learning valuable job skills. These were subsequently installed at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport. This is just one of several enhancements to this airport that made this a wonderful airport to visit. More information about the program and artwork available for purchase is at www.afterschoolmatters.org.
