Play Me I'm Yours Project
Last year throughout downtown Albany we saw several artist-decorated pianos placed at locations, on the street. Play Me I'm Yours is a project that travels annually to cities across the world. In 2014, City Hall, the Downtown Albany Business Improvement District and local business owners helped bring it to Albany, NY. One of the pianos actually never left. Donated and brought back from the dark depths of storage this summer, it sits on the sidewalk for anyone to come by and play. I heard you could find it in downtown's Clinton Square so I went over to check it out.
Local news station WTEN ABC 10 even stopped by for a listen while I was there (see a short video from their 10:30 broadcast here). The full news story about the project and the piano's return this summer is here
