Tickle The Ivories

Last August on one of my training walks through South Omaha I came upon this:

Public Piano Art in South Omaha.
I thought it might be a local art project.  It was an interesting idea.  There wasn't anyone playing it at the time and I didn't know how to play so I just took a picture.  I wish I'd seen someone playing it.  It turns out it is not just a local project.

Last week I came across an article talking about the pianos.  They've been put on streets in over forty-three cities in several countries.  The article was written by someone I met on my first Camino (Niamh).  You can read her article, "Play Me, I'm Yours — Street Pianos Pull People Together" on www.OZY.com.

Cool idea.
