Sixty Painted Pianos Hit the Streets of Boston & Cambridge this Month. See Where You Can Find Them!
The sound of music will be heard all across Boston from September 23-October 10, 2016 as Celebrity Series of Boston brings back Street Pianos Boston. Since July, 60 local artists have been hard at work, painting the pianos that will line the streets as part of the popular art installation Play Me, I’m Yours, conceived by international public artist Luke Jerram. Today, we’re excited to share the 60 locations of the pianos as well as the 75 collaborating organizations participating in Street Pianos Boston.
The artists, piano locations, and community partners were selected to celebrate and engage with every neighborhood in the city of Boston as well as select Cambridge locations. Celebrity Series is working with talented artists of all ages and backgrounds and a range of community partner organizations to host these pianos in parks, plazas, near T stations, and on sidewalks – all in locations where Bostonians from every neighborhood will encounter, listen, and play the pianos!
