Pianos About Town 2014

Theme: Celebrating Fort Collins 150th Birthday

Pianos About Town is a collaborative effort between the Fort Collins Art in Public Places Program and community partner Bohemian Foundation. This exciting project brings together visual art and music for the public to enjoy. We kicked off our fourth season this May. For updates, please visit us on Facebook at

You can help us care for the pianos! If you enjoy playing the pianos, help us protect them by closing the keyboard cover after each use and using the attached tarp to cover the piano in times of rain—Thank you!

Give a Painted Piano a Second Life

As the program progresses and our inventory increases, some of the painted pianos have been designated for retirement. Some are no longer in playable condition, but could be used for parts, wood, metal components, upcycled into furniture, or whatever creative ideas you can imagine for repurposing. The pianos are free and Pianos About Town will arrange to have the piano moved to your location. For more information, please contact Ellen Martin at (970) 416-2789 or .

Transformer Cabinet Murals

Art in Public Places, in collaboration with City of Fort Collins Utilities, has been transforming electrical boxes throughout town since 2006. The program has been growing ever since, and 164 cabinets have been painted to date.

16 artists and 1 non-profit group have been selected to paint transformer cabinets this summer. The cabinets will be at various locations throughout Fort Collins. Check back this spring for updates on artists, links to concepts, and progress photos. You can see images of previous year's murals in the Image Gallery.
