Sing for Hope Pianos

I was honored to be chosen to paint a donated piano for Sing for Hope. In a "Art for All" movement, these pianos are place in NYC parks for all to play for the month of June. It is then donated to a school in need, allowing for music programs in schools.

First the piano is taken apart and sanded.

 Then it is primed with white gesso.
It feels very strange to paint over a piano, like you are performing a sacrilegious act.

This is me, outside 1 Chase Manhattan Plaza, where our donated painting floor is. Fifty pianos were donated this year. If you are an interested artist, they have a yearly open call, see link below. You are given three months to paint your piano, at their location, then it is place in a NYC park for the month of June. And finally, after being re-tuned, is given to a school in need. To apply for your school to receive a 2018 Sing for Hope Piano, visit the site below!
