My awesome project is to take used pianos and make them public- Public Art that is! The idea, modeled after the success of many major cities, takes forgotten pianos, has them painted by local artist(s) and places them in public spaces to be interacted with, by the public, from the non-player noodle-ing to the advanced playing impromptu shows. These pianos are fixed and would be placed in non-residential spaces. I am currently in talks with he Town to explore such spaces + public art initiatives. Projects similar to this in the past have created a sense of wonder, surprise and community pride.
