2016 “Sing for Hope” Public Art Project, “Global Waterfront Village” Location: Jane Bailey Memorial Garden, Brooklyn-NY.


From the Bronx to Beirut, The Sing for Hope Pianos is a global arts initiative that produces artist-designed pianos; places them in public spaces for anyone and everyone to enjoy; then transports and activates them year-round in permanent homes in schools, hospitals, transit hubs, refugee camps, and community-based organizations. With more media impressions than any other public art project in the past decade and over 575 individual piano artworks created, Sing for Hope has provided more pianos for under-resourced public schools than any other organization worldwide.
