The Sing for Hope Pianos - throughout the five boroughs at outdoor locations from street-sides to parks
Through June 16, 2013 - The five boroughs

Sing for Hope Pianos works with artists with visions as diverse as their backgrounds to paint pianos and then places them outdoors throughout NYC's five boroughs as part of a public art installation to be enjoyed and played by all. After June 16, the pianos will live on at schools and organizations throughout the city where they can continue to be played and enjoyed. Artists who designed and customized pianos in previous years include fashion designers Diane von Furstenberg and Issac Mizrahi, visual artists Julian Schnabel and Scott Taylor and more. The program was founded by Camille Zamora and Monica Yunus, internationally acclaimed sopranos who share a common belief in the power of arts volunteerism to transform underserved communities. Since its launch in 2010 the program has gained the praise and support of notable figures such as Mayor Michael Bloomberg and world-famous Alicia Keys. Sing for Hope Pianos will be amplified by Chobani and while the pairing may seem unusual at first glance, they come together in a well-suited partnership as they align in the important mission to provide access to all, whether that access is rooted in the arts or in good food.
