Pianos About Town

Bringing Art and Music To The Streets

Pianos About Town brings local art and spontaneous music to the streets of Fort Collins.

Pianos About Town started in 2010 as a collaboration among Bohemian Foundation, the Downtown Development Authority, and the City of Fort Collins Art in Public Places Program.

Community members watch as local artists transform donated pianos into public art.

Scattered among 20 locations across town in the summer, and six locations in the winter, the completed pianos offer surprise interruptions of color and music across Fort Collins. The whimsical pianos beckon to passersby and invite them to make and listen to music together.

In the summer of 2018, Pianos About Town welcomed the 100th piano into the program.

Interested in donating a gently used piano?

The program uses full-size upright pianos that are at least 48″ tall and in good working order. Individuals who have a piano to donate can email a photo of the piano to Liz Good, Visual Arts Coordinator for the City of Fort Collins at or call (970) 416-2646 to determine if the piano is a good fit for the program. If the piano meets program requirements, professional movers pick up the piano free of charge in Fort Collins, Loveland, Windsor, Wellington or surrounding areas.
