Piano Artist Paints NYC Streets with Music

Ad Feedback

It's an art project designed to turn ordinary people into street musicians.

Pianos have been popping up throughout the streets of New York City as well as towns and cities across the country.

It's all a part of a project by artist Luke Jerram. He has planted 60 pianos around the Big Apple in hopes of turning a city of strangers into friends. The pianos were all donated and painted by local artists.

"It turns people like me who just play piano at home into public performers. The piano acts as a big blank canvas for other people's creativity and that's really powerful," Jerram explained.

"Anytime I see a piano, it's like a magnet - it draws me to it," New York City resident Bill Skala said. "I'm very proud of this artwork, and I hope the public enjoys their pianos. The project belongs to the people of New York now."

Plans call for all of the pianos located on the streets of New York City to be donated to local schools and community centers after the exhibit runs its course.
