Play Me, I'm Yours

I always make sure that the lid over the keyboard is open before I start to play.

I'm a fan of public art projects like this:
Touring internationally since 2008, “Play Me, I’m Yours” is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Over 500 pianos have now been installed in cities across the globe, from New York to Sydney, bearing the simple instruction ‘Play Me, I’m Yours.’

Play Me, I'm Yours will be in Los Angeles (Apr 2012), San Juan (May 2012), Salt Lake City (Jun 2012), London (Jun 2012), and Salem, Oregon (Jul 2012). Want it to come to your city?
