'The Fabrication' Piano

Press Release
05/19/2017

“The Fabrication" Piano by Lakshmi Narayan Kadambi and Grey Held. 

A fun collaborative project for the city of Newton, MA, Newton Festival of the Arts. The 9 “Artful” pianos in the city is each different from the other, this one is special because it is decorated with fabrics from many parts of the world including India and to me a very special tribute to "multiculturism" here in the United States. 

Grey Held who is a poet and artist has written a very special “welcoming” poem. 

This Sunday, May 21st Thinkfolk will have a Kalamkari coloring event where adults and kids will color a billboard "Tree of birds" a contribution from kalamkari artists from Dwaraka, India.
 
This drawing of a "Tree of birds" was originally done on cotton cloth by DWARAKA, India then transposed onto a billboard for a series of coloring events organized for the Newton Festival of the Arts. Kids who visited started the coloring on May 13th at the Kids Fest next to the Newton Center Artful Piano. The next two events are on May 21st from 11-1pm at the West Newton piano and June 4th from 4-5:30 pm at the Auburndale Library Piano.
