Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over 10 million people worldwide – more than 1,500 pianos have already been installed in over 50 cities across the globe, from London to New York, bearing the simple instruction Play Me, I’m Yours.
Located on streets, in public parks, markets and train stations the pianos are available for everyone to play and enjoy. Play Me, I’m Yours invites the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment. Often decorated by local artists and community groups, the pianos create a place of exchange and an opportunity for people to connect.
Play Me I’m Yours has just come to an end in Aberdeen, but the project will be back in Boston and Munich this September. We are currently working with a number of other potential partners for 2016 and 2017, so more new cities will be announced in due course – watch this space! Read More...

There was a lady listening to me play and when I finished she had tears in her eyes. I asked her if she was okay and she said that her father used to play like that.

And now the paint! Our "professional" crew gets started on some paint. The bright beautiful colors are representational of Eastmark community. We are hoping to bring the past to the present with out piano.
