The Feast NY
New York is home to a diverse array of public art projects, but the latest one to hit city streets has paired some designers with a classic instrument: the piano.
Starting Saturday, a whopping 88 grand pianos will hit city streets -- a project organized by non-profit Sing for Hope, which connects volunteer artists to schools and hospitals (co-founded by Julliard alums Monica Yunus and Camille Zamora). Each piano has been decorated by a local designer or artist, from Diane von Furstenberg, Isaac Mizrahi, Kate Spade. For example, Mizrahi's (pictured) is hot pink and sports an oversize bow, while Spade's features ladylike roses.
The Feast got a sneak peek at some of the soon-to-debut instruments at Sing for Hope's warehouse in Tribeca; Come Saturday, anyone can find a piano near them and start playing. [The Feast New York]
