Pianos About Town is looking for artists and organizations who can use piano parts, after they've been decommissioned from the program. Many parts can be creatively re-used for art projects, take apart days, or maker spaces. We have hammers, keys, sound boards, etc.

Come see what we have and pick up parts by appointment.

Let us know if you are interested by emailing Liz Good at bGdvb2RAZmNnb3YuY29t or calling 970-416-2646.

Pianos About Town is a collaborative effort between the Fort Collins Art in Public Places Program and community partners Bohemian Foundation and the Downtown Develoment Authority. This exciting project brings together visual art and music for the public to enjoy. We are currently planning our 6th season! For updates and to share your photos and videos of the pianos in action, please visit us on Facebook.

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!
