Street Pianos Boston: The 60 Artists

A sneak peek at some of the artists' progress!

A sneak peek at some of the artists’ progress!

It’s been a thrilling process to select the 60 local artists who will be participating in Street Pianos Boston, and we’re pleased to say they have hit the ground running! Last week, the artists began work on their respective canvases, and Bostonians will be able to see their finished products on the streets of Boston and Cambridge this fall.

But who are these creative contributors? Selected through a public application process, these artists represent a variety of backgrounds and artistic abilities. They hail from neighborhoods across the city as well as Greater Boston (see more details below). And, in addition to painting and illustration, they work in sculpture, quilting, woodblock printing, dance, and music—all mediums they will bring to bear as they create the pianos!

Both amateur and professional artists will be sharing their talents with us for this project, and 19 will be bringing their unique perspectives as past contributors, having previously taken part in Street Pianos Boston 2013.

See the full list of artists below and keep an eye out for updates from the studio by following the hashtag #StreetPianosBoston, or by signing up for Street Pianos Boston email updates here.

Street Pianos Boston returns September 23 – October 10, 2016, and will feature 60 pianos—decorated by these artists—in public outdoor space in every Boston neighborhood and select Cambridge locations for the public to play and enjoy. Each piano will feature a simple invitation: “Play Me, I’m Yours.” Piano locations will be announced at a later date.
