Sing for Hope, in partnership with the City of Beverly Hills and the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, is bringing its Sing for Hope Pianos program to Beverly Hills. The unique project will feature artist-designed upright pianos placed across Beverly Hills from Aug. 5 through Sept. 6.
In connection with the program, Sing for Hope has announced an open call for visual artists to design and create the pianos artwork. Local artists are encouraged to submit their proposals at singforhope.org for consideration by the volunteer adjudication panel of California-based art world luminaries and community leaders.
The Sing for Hope Pianos will be displayed throughout parks and public spaces in Beverly Hills. Locations will include the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, Beverly Hills City Hall, Beverly Gardens Park and Rodeo Drive.
Since 2010, more than 500 artist-designed Sing for Hope Pianos have been placed on the streets of New York City and other locations. Leading figures such as Julian Schnabel, Diane von Furstenberg, and Lance Johnson have participated. After the public installation, the Sing for Hope Pianos are moved to permanent homes in underserved local schools, hospitals, and community centers, where they serve as ongoing generators of dynamic arts programming. Future homes of these Sing for Hope Pianos in Beverly Hills will include some of The Wallis’ school partners in the Greater Los Angeles region.
