The city council has an ordinance under consideration to allocate one percent of capital improvement funds to pay for the program.
Organized by the Hickory Museum of Art, \"Chairs on Parade\" is a public art project that celebrates Hickory's best known product - furniture. Located around the town are 45 larger-than-life, artistically decorated dining room chairs. The chairs are over five feet tall and three feet wide and were painted by local artists.
