Utility Box Installation
I was honored to be apart of the Downtown Revitalization Project funded by the
City Of Springfield’s Cultural District.
It was a week of creative, unified expression amongst like minded creatives…
I decided on a “Balanced” theme for this piece. I set out with the intention of having half of the piano be a linear, simplified shape pattern, and the other half being improvised, abstract shapes that I imagined on the spot. I lightly sanded the piano with 220 grit sandpaper, after which I taped off all the areas I did not want color. I started applying acrylic paint with a brush in various tones to the piano. When finished, I applied a lacquer to protect the finish. Completing this Art Installation was really enjoyable to do, especially considering these pianos were tuned the next day and able to be played by any resident of the city that wanted to afterwards..
