The Benches of Avon is a public art exhibit to take place over a five-week period. This event will incorporate local artists pairing with local nonprofits and a bench sponsor to produce artistic, functional, benches to be on display as an amenity to guests during our busy summer season.

  • Fostering an amenity for guests and locals
  • Creating a lasting impact for nonprofits and local artists
  • Achieves regional/national recognition and participation
  • Maximizes promotional and marketing reach across many avenues
  • Lays a foundation for a future Arts District
  • Builds the Avon brand
  • Delivers fresh content, and an enhanced experience
  • Will drive visitors to the Town of Avon to experience the exhibit
  • Will promote an atmosphere of vitality, fun and celebration
  • Curates a sense of community and pride for our residents and guests
