    Once a decade, our nation comes together to participate in the decennial census.
    Everyone counts.
    The census counts every person living in the United States once, only once, and in the right place.
    It distributes $675 billion.
    Data determines how more than $675 billion in federal funding is spent in vital programs.
    It’s about fair representation.
    Results are used to reapportion the House of Representatives, determining how many seats each state gets.
    It’s about redistricting.
    State officials use the results to redraw the boundaries of their congressional and state legislative districts. 
    Your data are confidential. 
    Federal law protects your census responses. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics. By law your information cannot be shared with immigration enforcement agencies or law enforcement agencies.
    It’s in the Constitution.
    The U.S. Constitution requires a census every 10 years—it covers the entire country and everyone living here.

    The Chair Show explores the creativity, forms and art of seating. Chairs give shape to the ways in which we rest and recreate ourselves in private, or inhabit ‘seats of power’ in public. As supporting players of day-to-day existence, focal points of ceremonies, or revered objects of spiritual and sacred spaces, chairs are invested with diverse meanings and purposes.

    The Chair Show includes sculptural, conceptual, functional and dysfunctional forms of seating, as well as paintings and installations inspired by chairs.
