I was so ecstatic to find out I was chosen to participate in the city of Peabody’s painted piano project that was a collaboration among Opportunity Peabody, the Peabody Cultural Collaborative, ArcWorks Community Art Center, Peabody Access Telecommunications, the Peabody Institute Library and Rousselot inc. With my shared love for playing the piano and art, I was immediately sending in my application in hopes my design would be picked. After some time I got the news I was indeed selected for this project and three other artists and I were hard at work immediately. The entire month of April was designated for this activity and time was ticking away as the muscle aches from strange contorted positions from hours of painting set in. I was enthralled and driven the entire time I added layer after layer slowly watching my visions unravel onto this unique platform. My entire being was rejoiced to be a part of yet another community art piece. I truly believe people come together and feel much more comfortable surrounded by examples of art in there hometown areas.
