88 Pianos

Pretty Pianos: Have you tracked down one of the 88 colorfully decorated pianos in your neighborhood? Now through June 16, you can spot these public art installations that are to be enjoyed and played by all, set up by the nonprofit Sing for Hope Pianos.

What's even cooler is that after June 16, the pianos will live on at schools and organizations throughout the city to help provide access to the arts in underserved communities. See if you can spot one this weekend!
