Images from Street Pianos.
Kane and I were walking back to my office today after having a nice little lunch date, when all of a sudden we walked past the little park outside of my building and saw a man playing a painted piano smack in the middle of the benches and trees. So, needless to say, as soon as I got back to my computer I looked up what on Earth was going on. Turns out there is an awesome public art installation called "Play Me: I'm Yours" that just started in NYC today!! It consists of 60 pianos set up in public spaces all over NYC. They're out from 9am-10pm everyday from now until July 5. They're there for anyone who wants to play them.
The art installation is by artist Luke Jerram, in collaboration with Sing for Hope. Read more about this really great project here. Oh, and apparently after the installation all of the pianos will be donated to schools and community centers in need of musical instruments. How cool is that?
