Take a Seat in Belfast and Enjoy Bench Artwork

Catherine Pegram

Folks in Belfast are encouraging visitors to take a seat and enjoy some unique artwork. It’s part of a program called Please Be Seated.30 creatively designed benches have been placed in various locations downtown. They are all decorated by area artists, who had to submit a proposal for their design to a local committee. The idea was to create some outdoor art for the city and give people a place to relax while shopping.The benches will be on display through October. To find out where they’re all located, log on to www.ourtownbelfast.org and look for the Please Be Seated map.
