About Our Auction

This is your opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind hand painted bench, designed and created by a local artist! Placed in and around Newton’s village centers earlier this spring, the benches were part of Newton Community Pride's 2022 public art initiative called Sit & Let Your Spirit Soar.

Each donated bench was originally located in an 1895 historic building in Newtonville currently owned by the Boston Chinese Evangelical Church. These beautifully painted and unique benches will be a wonderful addition to your home or yard!

Auction Opens September 16th at 7:00am and Closes September 30th at 7:00pm.

Starting Bids, Buy it Now Price, and Winning Bids all include moving the bench to your Newton home, yard, or ground floor location.

All benches will be moved to your Newton home or yard on Saturday, October 8, 2022.

All benches are being sold "As Is" and can be viewed on location. Details about each bench, artists' inspiration and location are noted under each listing.

Proceeds will support NCP's 2023 spring public art installation.
