Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library's Street Piano

Friends we went out to dinner with last night mentioned seeing street pianos during a recent visit to Boulder, Colorado.  (Didn't find a video specific to Topeka.)

Playing in the Key of Art?  (Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library teen blog, 7/24/2013)

Excerpt: Ten students, two library staffers and a whole lot of Elmer’s glue, newspaper, acrylic paint and spray paint went into a musical attraction that will soon sit outside the library. 

A piano, complete with bench, is intended to be played and viewed as a work of art. Teens came in during weeknights in mid-July to paint and learn some art lessons from the lead artist on the project Christian Sauerman, a Washburn sophomore majoring in art.
