Benchmark Cedar Promotional Bench

This bench was designed as an artist promo for the first BenchMark project, organized by the Parksville and Qualicum Beach Chambers of Commerce. The organizers wanted a demo bench created to help inspire local artists to participate in this fun initiative. We had six hours to transform a raw cedar bench into a work of art! Inspired by our love for a delicious summer drink on a beautiful Parksville patio, we chose to create a bright zesty bench using exterior latex, spray paint and acrylic ink.

In the end, 60 cedar benches were beautified by local artists and creatives before being temporarily homed across the Oceanside area and then auctioned off in support of the artists and local arts and business organizations.
