Once again, CTG is involving local artists in celebrating the glamour and history of the Academy Awards
Ten artists will have the opportunity to create Director's Chairs in honor of award-winning films from the first 83 years of the Academy Awards. The chairs will be auctioned off during CTG's Oscar Night celebration at the O. Henry Hotel on February 26, 2012.
