About the piano
Location: Virginia Park, Westchester & Virginia Ave, Bronx, NY. Hours: Dawn to dusk Click here for full map of all Sing for Hope Piano locations. My design is called "Nature is Watching You". My purpose is to make people reflect on how we treat Nature and subsequently the planet. We have to be more conscious of our acts and their consequences. I have been painting EyeFlowers for a couple of years. Nature, Ecology, Sustainability are very important to me, but we live in a world of consumerism and materialism where we forget to take care of our planet. I was raised in a conscious household. We didn't waste energy, we recycled and upcycled everything. U.S.A has a different mentality where everything is used and thrown away. I would like to change that, even if it's one person at a time.
