Artist Spotlight: Anthony Sherin

"Solo, Piano- NYC" chronicles a 24 hour period in the life of a piano sitting on a NYC curbside.  This short video is sweet, poignant and sad all rolled up in 5 minutes.  We get to watch as passersby play, speculate and try to adopt this poor piano.  Make sure you watch till the end, when we learn of the piano's fate.  I LOVE this video- Anthony Sherin makes me care ...immensely ...about what happens to this inanimate, but highly personified object.  And, at the end of it, I am somewhat sad that I care so much.

Love it.
