Palo Alto Festival of the Arts
chopin and chandeliers-2019

 

What do you get when you combine Frederic Chopin and Dale Chihuly? You get Chopin & 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.

Colorful and whimsical chandeliers, made from discarded plastic bottles, add to the fun-filled enjoyment of the interactive Chopin & Chandeliers' PLAY ME piano located on Tasso Plaza.

Presented by Stanford Health Care, festival attendees will be mesmerized by these up-cycled plastic bottles re-created into vibrantly colored "Chihuly-like" sculptures.

The colorful assortment of chandeliers surrounding the Play Me Piano, invites festival-goers to let their fingers do the walking across the keyboard, creating their own music.

A chance to perform on the tree-shaded outdoor piano will be an unexpected and joyful experience while strolling through the multituede of eye-catching visual art displays.
