London: 2012 Olympics and Pianos!
We undertake a lot of piano removal work moving uprights and grand pianos from Bristol to London however we have never been asked to leave one on a pavement not yet anyway! Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram, which has been touring internationally since 2008. More than 600 pianos have now been installed in 26 cities across the globe, from New York to London bearing the simple invitation ‘Play Me, I’m Yours.’ The project has reached more than two million people worldwide, with each new city that commissions the work becoming part of a growing legacy.
City of London Festival has presented the artwork in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. This year the City of London Festival celebrated its golden jubilee anniversary on a grand scale, presenting Play Me, I’m Yours with 50 golden street pianos, spread across London landmarks and beauty spots of the City and neighbouring boroughs for three weeks of singing and playing. They stayed on the streets until Friday 13 July 2012
