United Way of Midland County presents The Chair Project – an art exhibition designed to build awareness around the issues our family, friends, co-workers and neighbors face each and every day.

Our goal is to share impact stories in a unique and moving way. Local artists will paint a wooden chair to represent a real story of someone in our community, showing the struggle that was faced and the success that was found. Each story will represent one of the fifteen issue areas that align with Youth Success, Health and Household Stability.


The artwork will be on display at the Midland Center for the Arts for guests to experience the stories of our neighbors through the work of local artists.
