Photographer Curtis Krueger and the Traveling Chair


We all know that in order to earn a living at art fairs the artists must be “on the road.” Here is a very nice story by Detroit Free Press columnist, Susan Ager, “The Chair That Doesn’t Sit Still” chronicling art fair artist Curtis Krueger and his travels with an elderly neighbor’s chair.

Recently Curtis’s truck burst into a fireball on his way to a show. He grabbed what was most important upon exiting, then went back for the chair which has been his traveling companion to all 50 states where it poses for a memorable photo. His first photo of the chair was taken as a birthday gift for his 98 year old neighbor, a real homebody. It was entitled “Mrs. Davis’ Chair Goes to the Beach.”

In her lifetime Mrs. Davis mostly stayed at home, yet her spirit travels with Curtis to many locations and inspires him still.
