Street pianos



The new header (and the above photos) are from the street piano art project that was here during the month of April. They select artists from a city to decorate the pianos, then they are placed on the street where anyone who feels like it can play them. Austin had 14 pianos. Afterward, the pianos are donated to schools and such.

It's a traveling art project, with London, Geneva, and San Juan coming up next.

Here's the website: Street Pianos.

I didn't play this piano in the pic. I don't even remember how to play chopsticks. These days, if it's not a tambourine or a cowbell, I probably can't play it.

that's a great idea..in West they'd have to leave accordians on park benches.
