The Sing for Hope piano has arrived in Tompkins Square Park

The Broadway cast of "Chicago" in collaboration with Queens-based artist Stephanie Tartick designed this still-under-wraps piano, titled "All that Jazz" ...

Per the Sing for Hope website:

The Sing for Hope Pianos places artist-designed pianos throughout NYC’s parks and public spaces for anyone and everyone to play. For three weeks this June, the pianos will bring individuals and communities together in an open festival of art for all. After their time on the streets, Sing for Hope will transport the instruments in NYC public schools, where they will become hubs for Sing for Hope’s ongoing creative programs and enrich students’ lives for years to come.

This year, Sing for Hope will place its 400th unique piano artwork in the five boroughs, making NYC host to more street pianos than any other city in the world. As New York City’s largest recurring public art project, the Sing for Hope Pianos impacts an estimated 2 million people each year.

The piano will be here near Temperance Fountain until June 25.

Tompkins Square Park was home to the Prince-inspired piano last June.

Thanks to Steven for the photos!

I know that says "Lipschitz" on the bottom there, but I really wish it said "Upschitz" as it appears that way.
