Village seeks 'Benches' artists

Calling all creative types! The Village will host its annual Benches on the Avenue public art program from May to October next year in Downtown Tinley and is looking for local artists to participate.

This year's theme is “Around the World” and will feature imaginative, three-dimensional works that depict some of the most explored and fascinating travel destinations, vacation spots and/or iconic landmarks in the world. Those who are interested can fill out an application form at and submit it by Jan. 31 with a design for review.
