Street Pianos Boston

For the past couple weeks Boston has been host to 75 pianos as part of the ongoing StreetPianos.com art project. The project was started by artist Luke Jerram in 2008. Each piano is uniquely designed and decorated, and has the phrase “play me, I’m yours” to encourage the public to sit down and play. I could only spend a couple minutes at each piano I visited, but about half were being played when I was there, many by some very talented players. The Boston exhibition ends on Monday, so I’m glad I had the chance to see a few.
