Pianos About Town

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 are currently in the middle of our 4th season! For updates and to share your photos and videos of the pianos in action, please visit us on Facebook at Facebook.com/PianosAboutTown.

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 bad weather—Thank you!
