"Chairity" Auction

When the new Augusta Richmond County Public Library opened in June of last year, the former mid-century library building with it's mid-century furnishings was closed. Shortly after the closing, most of the tables, desks, chairs, book shelves, etc. were auctioned off. Sixty Eames molded plastic chairs were not sold. Instead, they have been re-designed and embellished by 23 artists, architects and interior designers to be sold at an auction on October 20th for the benefit the Augusta Public Library.

Could this be holly? In any case this bush was captured outside the Morris Museum of Art.

Buddha Lounge & Shoe Bar?

While visiting the Arts in the Heart of Augusta Festival over the past weekend, I stumbled across this lounge/bar. Although closed, I peered inside and saw what indeed looked like a lounge. The shoe part, however had me stumped. Apparently, shoes are sold upstairs - at least that's what I discovered online. I think this is an establishment I need to check out!

The featured country in this year's Arts in the Heart of Augusta Festival was Greece. That said, the global village included cuisine from China, India, Thailand, Jamaica, Ireland, Brazil, Pacific Islander, African-American, Korea, Nigeria, Acha, Philipines, Samoa and Germany. I stood in this line for a beef patty and a ginger beer.
