Artful Piano 2016 Bidding Closes

One-of-a-Kind Chance to Own One-of-a-Kind Art!

Show your support for NAC and own a unique masterpiece!



In April, the New Art Center participated in Newton's "Artful Piano Project." Nine pianos were painted and placed in Newton's village centers. Members of the community were invited to play the pianos, enjoy performances, and run or bike the piano circuit.

NAC's piano, entitled The Sound of Art, was created by Ben Jundanian with inspiration from young artists at the New Art Center. It was painted using the universal language of art to bring our community together and blur the lines between all forms of expression. The piano has been on location this May at The Street at Chestnut Hill and has welcomed many spirited visitors and performers.

Now, you have a chance to own this unique piece! Starting today, NAC is accepting bids to win Ben's piano. Proceeds will benefit both the New Art Center and the artist.

Bidding starts at $600. The piano will go to highest bidder; in the event of a tie, we will draw a winner from the tying bids. When bidding, please consider the investments made in creating this masterpiece, including the artist's time, supplies, and moving the piano. Please email info@newartcenter.org to place your bid. Winner will be announced by Friday, May 27, at 12PM.

See images of the piano being created and on location HERE, and watch the piano in action HERE.
