2019 Pianos on the Street
Back for the fourth year, the public is invited to help liven up parks in Port Coquitlam with the sound of piano music.
This year the pianos have been painted with unique designs by local artists. Sarah Ronald invited the public to join her in completing her design on May Day and Marnie Maule also engaged with the community during Art at the Market on July 4 to help paint in her design.
There is one piano in Veteran’s Park (Outside of City Hall entrance).
The second piano will be installed in Lions Park (2300 Lions Way) during the week of July 15.
Pianos on the Street celebrates visual art and music. The program features the work of local artists and community groups, and provides opportunities for the community to play and enjoy music in public spaces. Spearheaded by Pacey’s Pianos and the Piano Teachers Federation in partnership with the City of Port Coquitlam, the program aims to inspire new and different uses for public spaces and promote music by making it accessible to the community.
The City of Port Coquitlam, in partnership with Pacey’s and the Piano Teachers Federation, invites local artists and community groups to paint pianos as part of the Pianos on the Street project. The pianos are displayed at outdoor locations in Port Coquitlam throughout July and August. The initiative supports the development of public art, activates public spaces, and promotes music within the community.
Pianos on the Street is a community engagement initiative spearheaded by Pacey’s Pianos and the Piano Teachers Federation in partnership with the City of Port Coquitlam.
