I chose to create a proposal around the concept of transformation. Pianos About Town was created to beautify Fort Collins, while promoting culture and local art. This project transforms Fort Collins into a wonderful place, filled with spontaneous music and color. Butterflies represent transformation well.  They are absolutely beautiful creatures that seem to lift the spirits of all who see them. They are also very spontaneous in their appearances. I want to create imagery on the piano that is striking and delicate, in the way that draws people in. Butterflies provide a simple enough subject to be identifiable by everyone but also speak to the beauty of transformation and spontaneity. Art in the community is highly appreciated because it is imagery that everyone can connect to and enjoy. It provides a common place for reference and interaction.
