Sing for Hope Pianos
2013 - SONGBIRDS
For 2013, I was given a lovely grand piano to work on.
My design depicts an Art Deco inspired illustration of my theme, Sing for Hope SONGBIRDS. The design is made up of flourishes and decorations that radiate outward to create stylized flowers which depict 4 different songbirds in each of the circular blossoms. These flourishes then continue over the sides of the piano in complementary colors creating a unified overall pattern that decorates the entire piano.
During the two week public installation, my piano was placed at Snug Harbor Cultural Center on Staten Island. Afterwards the project culminated with a fantastic closing celebration, in which all 88 pianos created by different artists were placed around the plaza at Lincoln Center for a day long festival of music and art.
