Do you know a piano that has seen better days but would love to be painted and played outdoors?
The City of Shoreline is planning its first “street piano” event for August 2012. Four pianos will be generously donated by Prosser Piano from its ranks of not too pretty, but still tunable and playable ranks. We are looking for two additional instruments in order to place six out in public, pedestrian-friendly locations. Visual artists will paint or otherwise decorate the pianos.
The artists, and pianists who will play scheduled concerts, will apply through an RFQ process and be selected by a panel. At times other than pre-planned performances, the general public passers-by may tickle the ivories. The goal is to enliven our summer environment with the colorful sounds of music.
If you know of a piano that might be just right for this project, please e-mail Ros Bird, Public Art Coordinator, with the details and contact information at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 206-801-2661. The piano team will check it out for suitability.
