I love the idea of this touring public art project by artist Luke Jerram.
Play Me, I’m Yours began in Birmingham, England in 2008, and has been traveling internationally ever since. So far, the project has placed public pianos in 22 cities.
Only a handful of American cities have hosted Play Me to date, including San Jose, Los Angeles, Austin, Cincinnati, Grand Rapids, and New York City. This summer, it will make it to Salem, Oregon and Salt Lake City, Utah as well as Paris, London and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
According to the project’s website, Play Me, I’m Yours has been seen, heard and played by more than 2 million people. Have the pianos made it to your city yet?
First seen via good.
