I’m fascinated about pianos since I was a child, so when I saw this beautiful piano on a random afternoon in a place I have been many times before, it made my day.
Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over 10 million people worldwide, more than 1,500 street pianos have already been installed in over 50 cities across the globe, from London to New York, bearing the simple instruction Play Me, I’m Yours.
Located on streets, in public parks, markets and train stations the pianos are temporarily available for everyone to play and enjoy.
I think it’s an awesome idea and I’m surprised that I didn’t know about it till now.
You can find this piano in Crossrail Place Roof Garden, a place that I wrote about a few months ago. Here is the post: http://busylovingmylife.com/crossrail-place-roof-garden and here is a global map with street pianos: http://www.streetpianos.com/map/.
Keep calm and play the piano!
