Sing for Hope is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that brings dynamic arts outreach programming to under-resourced communities throughout NYC. Their Pop-up Pianos program has been in the City every summer since 2010 and consists of 88 painted pianos being placed in public spaces all around the 5 boroughs. People are encouraged to play as much as they want for a few weeks, then before they are taken away, the 88 pianos are placed together in Lincoln Center for a massive interactive public art installation.
The group has started a Kickstarter campaign in order to help fund this year’s installation. Your financial help will go to the cost of moving the pianos, painting them and more. In return, the group will give you several rewards based on level of contribution. Click through to Kickstarter for more info.
Currently, the campaign has raised about 15% of the $10,000 goal with 27 days to go. Head to Kickstarter to learn more or get involved.
