ArtTracker| Luke Jerram’s pianos are here in New York, with twice as many as last year in London. Let’s pray this isn’t Manhattan’s global competitive spirit showing!

Our little AOC is looking pretty mighty when it comes to people’s piano performances. Not only did we cover London’s piano fest last year, but we’ve written up “Sing for Hope” and their Monica Yunus connection. Read on for more news about this terrific, impromptu event making music on New York’s streets for the next two weeks.

Luke Jerram’s discarded pianos are strewn all over London, demonstrating that Londoners are capable of spontaneous acts of creative exhuberance, often revealing. The 30 pianos are secured to the ground on spots from Portobello Road to St. Paul’s church.

The purpose of the project, costing a mere $22,000, is to get people interacting together in public spaces. Love it! Read the NYTimes Luke Jerram’s Art Project Puts Pianos All Around London.
