Palo Alto Festival of the Arts
chopin and chandeliers

 

These are not your typical chandeliers as seen in many homes or lavish atriums. Instead, these decorative chandeliers are better known as the art of up-cycling.  The process of converting old or discarded materials into something useful and often beautiful.

These modern sun-enhanced sculptures, inspired by and resembling the infamous intricate chandeliers created by renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly, are crafted from recycled plastic bottles to form an artistic sculptural display.

Now add an enticing street piano beckoning attendees to "come play" and together, you have "Chopin and Chandeliers" …..an inviting outlet for festival virtuosos or free-styling performers to participate at will.

Walk-by pianists evoke a spontaneous interaction of the senses as fingers glide across the keyboard while surrounded by a graceful dance of color.
 
Stop by "Chopin and Chandeliers" at the corner plaza on University at Tasso to see, to hear and to perform.
