Why did you put a piano on the street?

The short and immediate answer was to participate in Art on the Street and to celebrate 30 years of business in Downtown Guelph.

“But why a piano? Aren’t you afraid of vandalism or rain or graffiti or or?”

Well yes and no.

It’s an old piano and can’t hold a tuning, so I’m not really worried about it. A tarp will help when the weather gets wet. A supply of brightly coloured markers will encourage artist expression and ownership.

It has been played a lot by a variety of people. Mostly classical music but occasionally jazz, rock and kids tunes.  Even a little percussion by the musically challenged has entertained our Baker Street friends.

The reason why I put a piano on the street is best put by Rob O’Flanagan.  Cause it’s “Happy making!”.
