Piano.Push.Play. rescues pianos and puts them on the street and public places for everyone to enjoy. Just as Piano. Push. Play. rescues pianos, the ReBuilding Center rescues building materials. Our customers, volunteers, and staff range in knowledge and skill sets. Creatively reusing salvaged materials doesn’t require mastery; just a commitment to experimentation and resourcefulness. Our intention with the piano was to showcase the playful way in which both the materials and the people come together to make the ReBuilding Center community what it is. There are endless ways in which we can reuse and reinvent the way we use materials to bring life back to a space, a piece of furniture, or a piano!
A huge shout-out to ReBuilding Center staff and interns, Chris Larsen, Mykalene Piva, and Ari Watkins, for dedicating time to creatively reuse materials in the decoration of this piano.
Our piano currently lives by the Community Trees. Come give it a play!
