Ivories, tickled: Pop-up piano returns to Tompkins Square Park on Saturday

[Song for Hope]

Starting Saturday, the Sing for Hope Pianos return to NYC streets.

Per the website!

In one of New York City’s most vibrant public art installations, 88 artist-designed pianos (one for each key on a piano) are placed in parks and public spaces throughout the 5 boroughs for anyone and everyone to enjoy.

And Tompkins Square Park will have a piano (pictured above) created by P.S. 34.

Our design was inspired by the composition notebooks we use in school. The front and back of the piano show the notebook cover, the sides are notebook paper and the legs of the piano are pencils. You will also notice that on the side panels of the piano, we have written "hope" in various languages.

The piano will be in the Park through June 16.

As you will recall, the pop-up piano that visited Tompkins Square Park in 2011 was the worse thing to happen here since Daniel D. Tompkins decided to ... Oh, joking!

Here are some photos from Bobby Williams from July 2011...
