Behind the Scenes at Play Me, I’m Yours Boston – A Piano Public Art Project

Eliza and I are making a short documentary video piece following one piano as it’s decorated by artist Tova Speter, dropped off on the street for the public to play, and finally used in a special street performance to promote art therapy. It was great to visit as all the artists finished work on their pianos.

Aparna Das, who is focusing her piano art on the history and evolution of ragtime music, finished up work on her piano yesterday afternoon:
