In celebration of the ProLiance Energy Classical Fellowship Awards of the American Pianists Association (national classical piano competition taking place in Indianapolis), the American Pianists Association announces piano pARTs. Piano pARTs is a public art project in which eight artists have been selected to create artworks using pianos as their canvas. Meridian Music has provided the pianos. Four of the artists have painted grand pianos and four of the artists have deconstructed and used the parts of their piano to create a sculpture.
The kickoff event for American Pianists Association’s piano pARTs will take place on Thursday, April 11, at noon. All eight pieces will be on display around the circle and entertainment by 2011 American Pianists Association Jazz Fellowship Awards Finalist, Zach Lapidus will take place on the grounds of Christ Church Cathedral (weather permitting).
