‘Leacock Chairs’ recognize celebrated author Stephen Leacock and this project celebrated the 100th
anniversary of his book ‘Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town’. The 50 metal chairs were modelled after
Leacock’s favorite reading and writing chair, on display at the Leacock Museum in Orillia. Many of our
Chair artists gave a nod Leacock’s ’Mariposa’ and the wonders of life in a small town.
“As a summertime visitor I must remark that the Leacock Chairs on your main street transform your town into an artistic escapade the rivals the spirit of art come alive in such places as Florence and Paris.”
