Attractions: Play Me, I'm Yours

By Adam Sievering · August 3rd, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

In celebration of Cincinnati’s Classical radio stations, touring artist Luke Jerram will distribute 35 street pianos throughout Cincinnati and its suburban outskirts in an effort to promote creativity in a public space. In Luke’s words, “The street pianos … provide an interconnected resource, an empty blank canvas, for the public to express themselves and share their creativity.” Each piano is spray-painted with a message that reads, “Play me, I’m yours,” inviting every passerby to sit down and share their talent with others in the community, which Luke hopes will act as a catalyst for public conversation.

Starting Monday with a kick-off celebration on Fountain Square (11 a.m.-1 p.m.), pianos will be distributed to Findlay Market, Great American Ballpark, Music Hall, Purple People Bridge, University of Cincinnati, Jungle Jim’s, Price Hill Chili, Delhi Biggs, Hyde Park Square and over a dozen more locations in Greater Cincinnati. For complete listings, check out www.streetpianos.com/cincinnati2010 and then get out there and finally put those piano lessons to good use.
