James 1 Transformation of the Piano in Bogota, Colombia

Dedicated to the Heroic Fallen Members of the Colombian National Police.

Our artist, Wiley Skaret, enters a dusty Bogota warehouse only to find a 100-year old piano just waiting to be played. He sits down and begins a well-known piano concerto and soon mixes and mingles his own improvisation of his favorite Irish hymn. Piano technicians enter in order to sand and repair the dusty upright. Graffiti artists fit the pianist with a respirator and begin their work.  When finished, they pack their bags and leave without a trace.  Wiley suddenly finds himself surrounded by the Colombian National Police, who circle the piano in support.  And then it ends.

Was it a dream?  Or just a beginning?
