If you’re looking for somewhere to rest on a hot day this summer, there will be plenty of interesting places to sit in Downtown Stamford. The Downtown Special Services District is presenting its annual outdoor sculpture exhibit, and the theme this year is Street Seats. The exhibit features 40 originally designed and painted wooden benches to be installed throughout downtown in the first week of June.

Artists from around the state have been chosen to bring the benches to life. And each bench is being sponsored by a business or organization in the city. Organizers say the benches will be auctioned off at the end of the summer, with some of the proceeds going to the Palace Theatre and Curtain Call in Stamford. A kickoff party for the exhibit will be held on June 10 at the Stamford Marriott. For more information, visit
