We rescue pianos and put them on the street for everybody to enjoy. We want to give pianists more opportunities to play for the public.

 

ARTIST STATEMENT:

This year's contribution entitled “Heroes” is inspired by recently passed pop icons David Bowie and Prince. Featuring a glam-inspired David Bowie lightning bolt and purple Prince backgrounds, the piano is a tribute to two of Pop’s most influential cultural icons. The artist's representation uses mixed media; paper, wood, paint, sculpture, printmaking and fabric.
