880 Keys to the City!

How can a city have 880 keys? Take 10 pianos with 88 keys each, commission volunteer artists to turn them into works of art and scatter them in downtown locations. And there you go!

The  “Keys to the City” exhibit features 10 beautifully decorated pianos located here through Sunday, August 26. A fundraiser for the School of Piano Technology for the Blind, the pianos are sponsored by various local businesses and will be donated to non-profit organizations. The pianos were donated to the school and tuned and repaired by its students. (Read more about the school in this 2010 ZEST blog post)

Which one is your favorite? You can comment below and vote (and see more photos)  here through August 31, 2012.
