Artists have been hard at work, creating art pieces out of functional pianos - and one organ - for display and use around Shoreline this summer.

Nancy Bishop-HarveyLaura Brodax, OK.J. BatemanMarijke Keyser have been sharing a work space and dealing with issues like paint that doesn't cover varnish!

Nancy Bishop-Harvey enjoys the shared space. "It’s enjoyable and interesting to share the work space with other artists. We all have something to share with each other in the creative process."

But all will be ready for placement - scheduled to happen this week.

Thanks to artists for their amazing work and resilience in changing times for art-making, to all those who offered to donate beloved but no longer needed pianos, to local businesses who serve as hosts the pianos.

Here's where the pianos will be - visit them all - pose with them and send us photos!

Monka Brewing
North City Water District
Richmond Beach Library
