Another fundraising idea from the Central Park Conservancy: Celebrities, politicians, and designers design Central Park benches. The benches can be found around the park at the Dairy, Tavern on the Green, the Boathouse and the Dana Center at Harlem Meer. Then, in November, they will be on display in different Chelsea galleries, before being auctioned off on November 20.

This is sort of like Cow Parade.
