Sing for Hope, a New York-based non-profit organization that promotes arts accessibility, will install 60 donated (used) pianos in New York City parks and other public spaces next month. The “street pianos” are part of “Play Me, I’m Yours,” an international public art project created by British artist Luke Jerram. Jerram describes the project as “a blank canvas for everyone’s creativity.”
Pianists and passers-by will be able to post photos and videos to streetpianos.com/nyc2010, which features maps showing the piano locations and additional information about the project.
After the project ends in July, Sing for Hope will donate the pianos to area schools and community centers.
