|Pianos around town "Play Me I'm Yours"|

Today pianos painted by students in the city summer art program "ArtWorks" are out and about in Cincinnati. You can find two at Fountain Square and one at Music Hall.
Each piano has a "piano buddy" who is supposed to cover it with a tarp whenever it's about to rain. Anyone can stop and play. I can do chopsticks...and Heart & Soul...
I got a special tour of the pianos a couple weeks ago as the artists were applying finishing brushstrokes
ArtWorks students come from high schools all over Cincinnati and they also are doing big outdoor murals on buildings in neighborhoods. A professional artist supervises. This program won a national award this year, so kudo's to Mayor Mallory for starting the program.
