Fullerton, Ca – Discover the history of furniture design with an emphasis on woodworking. Guest presenter Brandon "Monk" Munoz of Monkwood Studio, a furniture artist as well as an expert in restoration, will be sharing historic examples and “tricks to the trade” at the Fullerton Museum Center on Sunday, November 17, 2013 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The event, entitled, “Sitting in Style,” is free to the public with regular museum admissions. Guest will also have the opportunity to view the newest exhibit, “The Art of Seating.”

 “The Art of Seating” provides audiences with a unique opportunity to see chair types that usually reside in private homes, withheld from public display. The American Chair Collection, the center of this exhibition, is an amazing and comprehensive private collection of iconic and historic chairs reaching back from the mid-1800s to pieces from today's studio movement. The exhibition provides an opportunity to see readily recognizable pieces alongside those rarely seen by the public.

No reservations are needed to participate in “Sitting in Style,” but large groups (more than 15) are asked to notify the Museum Education Office at (714) 738-3136 prior to coming to the museum.

The Fullerton Museum Center is located at 301 N. Pomona Ave., east of Harbor Blvd., in downtown Fullerton. Hours are noon-4 p.m. Tuesday-Wednesday and Friday-Sunday, and noon – 8 p.m. Thursday.  Further information may be obtained by calling the Fullerton Museum Center at (714) 738-6545 or at the website at: http://www.cityoffullerton.com/depts/museum/.

 Persons requiring special accommodations to view the exhibit are asked to notify the museum staff prior to coming to the Fullerton Museum Center.
