Village seeking Benches' artists

Are you an artist who's itching to create? Why not submit a design for the Village's 2021 Benches on the Avenue public art program?

This year's benches will be themed "Album Cover Tour" and will feature some of the most iconic and memorable record art of all time. The Village is looking for artists to create unique, imaginative, three-dimensional designs that are kid- and family-friendly. All genres and eras of music are welcome, and portrayals should be vibrant, colorful and include some degree of three-dimensional art.

Benches on the Avenue will run from May to October in Downtown Tinley. Each bench will be sponsored by a local business or individual who will take possession of it at the end of the season. Anyone with an imagination and a bit of artistic creativity can submit an entry!

Applications are due Jan. 29. Learn more on the Village website at
