Step into the heart of Tinley Park this summer and find yourself in the middle of a vibrant display of creativity and community spirit that has everyone talking … and sitting! With a theme of “Saturday Morning Cartoons,” the 2024 Benches on the Avenue public art project will whisk you away into a world where your favorite animated characters leap off the screen and onto the streets!

The Benches are more than just an outdoor art gallery; they’re a seasonal celebration that transforms Downtown Tinley into a canvas of imagination every year from May to October, offering a nostalgic trip down memory lane for the young and young at heart.

Each bench is adorned with colorful, three-dimensional artwork and attached flower boxes. They don’t just provide a spot for rest and photos, but also serve as a testament to Tinley Park’s vibrant artistic community.

Whether you’re local or visiting from out of town, make your way down Oak Park Avenue this summer. Take a moment to sit, admire and perhaps find a little inspiration on a bench that’s more than just a place to relax.

Join us in celebrating art, community and, of course, the joy of Saturday mornings remembered through the eyes of Tinley Park.
