Art Program: Street Music
12 pianos within the footprint for people to play and sing with at will. Painted by local children or painted on site. Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over 10 million people worldwide, more than 1,850 street pianos have been installed as part of 75 presentations that took place in 55 cities across the globe, from London to New York, bearing the simple instruction to ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’. Located on streets, in public parks, markets and train stations the pianos are available for everyone to play and enjoy.
Play Me, I’m Yours invites the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment, and to share their love of music and the visual arts. Decorated by local artists and community groups, our street pianos create a place for exchange and an opportunity for people to connect.
