Haydn

This piano spent some quality time at the summit of Mt. Tabor and now finds itself at Portland Center Stage at The Armory.

Designers

This piano was decorated by the wonderful folks at Splash Worldwide.

The thought behind this piano is to showcase our love for Portland and provide support for the neighborhoods that are involved in this experience. Our piano includes the Willamette River and the divide between the two parts of our city; staying with the theme of Portland, we have included roses on the piano, along with a rose compass on the bench with the outline of Oregon state. In addition, we have a lantern to bring light to the project—one that incorporates the “Go By Train” tower of Union Station right here in Portland.
