Have you see the piano at Hing Hay Park? It’s part of Pianos in the Parks, where 20 pianos have been designed by students and faculty at the Gage Academy of Art and dispersed through parks in King County. The program is trying to encourage people to go to parks and sit down and play the piano or listen to someone else play. The pianos can also be bid on so once the program is over, the highest bidders can take their pianos home. Pianos in the Parks is put on by Seattle Parks and Recreation, King County Parks, in partnership with private companies such as the Seattle Symphony and KEXP. (end)
