EASTON ARTISTS TO INSTALL OUTDOOR PIANO EASTON, PA October 10, 2017 - Downtown Easton will play host to a new musical addition to the sidewalk landscape. A public piano will be installed tonight near the Northampton Street entrance of the Easton Public Market. The piano is available to be played by all who pass by and feel the need to tickle the ivories. The project is known as Easton Piano Rescue and is the first in what the artists hope is a series of outdoor pianos to find their new home in Easton. 𠇊rt can be intimate and personal, but we were going for public and communal for this project,” explains Jason Farnsworth. He, along with Chris Fairchild and Tom DiGiovanni worked together to save the piano and give it new life. The artists worked with Greater Easton Development Partnership executive director, Jared Mast, to find a suitable location for the piano. “Jared understood what we were trying to achieve and wanted to help find the right spot for our inaugural piano rescue,” says Tom DiGiovanni. Chris Fairchild adds, “We hope this will grow to be a program that other local artists will have a hand in. There are a lot of pianos in the Lehigh Valley that sit unused and while many people are ready to let them go, they have nostalgic connections to them and would like to see some sort of extended life for the instrument. This installation does that on a number of levels, and in a fun way.” This particular piano installation will remain in place as long as the fall and winter weather allows, and the artists hope that beginners, professionals, young and old will stop to play or experience an impromptu street performance. Easton’s mayor Salvatore Panto commented on the installation, “I’ve seen these art pianos in other cities and since we are becoming more and more an arts community, adding musical arts to our public art is a great idea.” If you are an artist interested in designing, painting and installing a public piano, or a piano owner who is looking to donate your piano, contact Easton Piano Rescue at EastonPianoRescue@gmail.com or by direct message on Instagram @eastonpianorescue #eastonpianorescue #streetpianos #eastonpa.
