Pictures of Pretty People Playing Pink Pianos from the Play Me I’m Yours Austin art project.

2011 April 13

Over the last two weeks, you may have noticed pianos springing up like musical wildflowers throughout Austin. These, my friends, are not some new type of genetically modified Bluebonnet-nor are they just abandoned pianos. They’re actually part of of Play Me I’m Yours, a global art project hosted by hosted by Art Alliance Austin taking place in Austin through May 1st.

If you haven’t seen them yet, check out this map:

With 14 pianos located on the street, or in parks and squares all over Austin, they’re kind of hard to miss. In fact, I pass by no fewer than 6 of these bad boys every morning on my bike ride in to work. Sadly, I have’t had a lot of time to play around on them or take a picture. This morning, however, our friend, photographer and party persona Jeremiah Newton, took these photos of a pink-themed picnic he and his wife threw at the pink piano in Woolridge Square.

They’re great pics, plus I really wanted to say the phrase pics of pretty people playing pink pianos:

They also took these photos at the Long Center:

You can see the full set of Pink Piano Party photos on Jeremiah’s flickr feed. You can also see more photos of the pianos-or upload your own-on the Play Me I’m Yours Austin site.

Have you played with the pianos yet? You’ve got two more weeks!

    I played Bohemian Rhapsody on the red piano in the bmx park on 9th this weekend. Location was really cool and the BMXers were excited to have some entertainment. HOWEVER, the piano has been moved (multiple times) and loved a little too hard and the black keys were coming off while I played. I almost fell of the stool laughing as I tried to play with missing keys and bits flying off and bikes flying overhead. Was way cool. I’ll be hitting the rest here soon. If you hear Bohemian Rhapsody, it’s probably me. Come up and sing and say hello.

    Ditto on the bike park. That one is awesome… there’s a video online of a kid playing the Super Mario Bros 2 theme while dudes get crazy air above him -

    While we are in the sharing mood, my photos don’t have pretty pink people in them, I took some pretty decent pics if you want to check them out @
