“Piano Time” in Shoreline - the painted pianos are coming back

Piano Time will be back in August but a few more pianos are needed for artists to paint. Do you know a piano that is well-loved but no longer in use and would love to be painted and played outdoors?

The City of Shoreline is planning its third annual Piano Time “street piano” event for August 2014. 

Visual artists will paint or otherwise decorate the pianos but they must be in reasonable musical shape and not need any major repairs. Pianos with plastic rather than ivory keys preferred.

Professional pianists will play at the Arts al Fresco opening on August 7 and the finale concert on August 27. The rest of the month you and other passers-by may tickle the keys. Back by popular demand, the goal of this project is the same: to enliven our summer environment with colorful sounds and sights.

If you know of a piano that might be just right for Piano Time, email Ros Bird, Public Art Coordinator, with the details and contact information at rbird@shorelinewa.gov  or call 206-801-2661. Prosser Piano will help us check it out for suitability.
