What comes to mind when you think of community art? Perhaps the sculpture you pass on the way to work, or the community theatre group you joined as a kid. Maybe, if you live in New York, you envision the Sing for Hope Pianos, hand-painted by local artists and set on the streets and parks for any passer-by to play. Community art means something different to everyone, but what does it mean for communities themselves? Is there a palpable, even measurable effect that community art has in transforming the neighborhoods, towns, and cities where it resides?

It’s been a melodious fall in NYC public schools. There are now 180 Sing for Hope Citizen Artist Schools in NYC, 50 of them new this year.

Sing for Hope staff, Piano Artists, and Artist Partners have been busy visiting these schools for their inaugural Citizen Artist Assemblies.
