‘Paint the Piano’ viewing, kick-off party set for Rayne Depot
By Lisa Soileaux
The public is invited to attend and continue their support for a new project designed for the City of Rayne, “Paint the Piano Project.”
What began as a simple project of the community-based “Rayne Remember” online site has grown into a project that will serve the city and add another featured addition to The Depot, an upright piano to be used for future events and programs.
A viewing, along with a wine and cheese kick-off party/donation night for the “Paint the Piano” project will be held Wednesday, July 23, at The Crossing at Mervine Kahn.
The wine and cheese party will take place at 6 p.m. at The Crossing’s Guest House to introduce a local artist, Sheila Faulk, who will design the art for the piano. A viewing will follow at The Crossing at Mervine Kahn where the piano is located awaiting its make-over.
Donations are welcome and the public is invited. Please share with all of your friends.
As noted by event chairperson Madelene Boudreaux, Mayor Roland Boudreaux is in support of Rayne’s newest community project, helping to promote the arts in our community.
The piano will be placed in the depot square upon completion for everyone’s entertainment pleasure. It will also be available for visitors to play at their leisure, in addition to providing a unique setting for photo ops.
Funds have been raised to purchase the piano and are still needed to complete the piano’s facelift and painting. Find out more of Rayne’s newest community project by attending the kick-off party at The Crossing.
