Bringing Art and Music To The Streets


Pianos About Town brings local art and spontaneous music to the streets of Fort Collins.

Pianos About Town started in 2010 as a collaboration among Bohemian Foundation, the Downtown Development Authority, and the City of Fort Collins Art in Public Places Program.

Community members watch as local artists transform donated pianos into public art.

Scattered among 20 locations across town in the summer, and six locations in the winter, the completed pianos offer surprise interruptions of color and music across Fort Collins. The whimsical pianos beckon to passersby and invite them to make and listen to music together. In the summer of 2018, Pianos About Town welcomed the 100th piano into the program.
