History: Built in 1995, the first chair that rested at this site sat at the Walker Art Center before coming to High Bridge Park as a publicity piece for the Green Chair Project. The Green Chair Project employs inner city youth over the summer through constructing and marketing regular-sized green Adirondack lawn chairs.  The present chair replaced the original in 2002, when weathering destroyed the original.  It weighs two thousand, five hundred pounds
