Pianos In Pinellas

Pianos in Pinellas is a public music & art project produced by Clearwater Arts Alliance consisting of Eleven upright pianos, painted by local artists and placed in Eleven prime public locations around Clearwater for the public to play and admire. The eleven pianos have been sponsored and hosted by local art supporters who view this project as an ideal catalyst to elevate our community as an Arts and Cultural friendly region and to promote cultural tourism throughout the area. The public art pianos will also become public music entities and played by visitors and residents of Pinellas.

The project is designed to promote the City of Clearwater as an Arts and Culture friendly city and to attract cultural tourism. Pianos in Pinellas hopes to bring public music and art to our community’s fabric, improving the quality of life, enhancing neighborhood identity, strengthening economic development and elevating the pride of our citizens through the Arts. This fundraiser will help support Clearwater Arts Alliance’s mission to advocate, collaborate and bring visibility to the arts to create a better community for Clearwater.

The Pianos in Pinellas project officially kicks off November 25, 2014 and runs through December 31, 2014.

The pianos have been donated by Randy’s Wholesale Pianos and artistically painted in a variety of styles depicting life in our community. The local artists, sponsors, and piano locations are listed below.

As part of Pianos in Pinellas, we encourage the public, young and old, to play and perform on the pianos free of charge. Performers will be encouraged to video their performance and send a link to Clearwater Arts Alliance where the entries will be judged. Winners will be selected and will perform at the Encore Party on Wednesday, January 14 at Winter’s Dolphin Tale Adventure on Cleveland Street. The Encore Party will also be the location where the art pianos will be auctioned off to interested art and music lovers.

Join us for the Pianos In Pinellas Encore Party Wednesday, January 14, 2015.
