Artist fills Boston streets with pianos
Boston sidewalks are littered with pianos. A public art installation called “Play Me, I’m Yours” has been distributed around the city by British artist Luke Jerram. Passersby are encouraged to tickle the ivories on any of the the 75 pianos and record their performances to share online. The installation was supported by Celebrity Series of Boston to to commemorate its 75th season.
The pianos are decorated by local artists and community groups and hosted by local organizations such as the Museum of Fine Arts and Boston Arts Academy.
The installation will run from Sept. 7 to Oct. 14.
