"Fiona" — by designer: Doug Fir (Ron Smith)
(Off the street)
On her way to her forever home.
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.
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.
Led by Tony M., Paige C., and Ron S., once again, Doug Fir is delighted to be a contributor to the Piano. Push. Play project.

Her 1996 debut album, Tidal, went multi-platinum and its single, "Criminal," earned Apple a Grammy. A sometimes controversial media figure, Apple has released several more acclaimed albums, including 2005's Extraordinary Machine, and sung on various collections."
