Celebrating 100 Pianos About Town
In the summer of 2018, Pianos About Town welcomed the 100th piano into the program with a celebration in Old Town Square, Fort Collins.
After the celebration, the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery welcomed the pianos to its exhibit space. Community members are invited to view and play the piano through the new year.
During the first eight years of the program, 57 local artists painted 100 donated pianos for our community to enjoy. The 100th piano represents some of the things that make our community unique. Local artist Karina Branson interviewed groups of all ages and interests and walks of life about what makes Fort Collins unique.
These conversations inspired the artwork on the 100th piano.
A special thanks to the individuals and groups who participated in the process of creating the 100th piano, including graphic facilitator and artist Karina Branson; CSU's Student Diversity Programs and Services which include Asian/Pacific American Cultural Center, Native American Cultural Center, Pride Resource Center, El Centro, Women and Gender Advocacy Center, Resources for Disabled Students, and Black/African American Cultural Center; BASE Camp Summer Camp Program; Fort Collins Musicians Association; Fort Collins Senior Center and United Way of Larimer County's Generation United.
