Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over six million people worldwide – more than 1,300 pianos have already been installed in 45 cities across the globe, from New York to London, bearing the simple instruction ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’.
Located in public parks, bus shelters and train stations, markets and even ferries the pianos are available for any member of the public to play and enjoy. Who plays them and how long they remain on the streets is up to each community. Many pianos are personalised and decorated by artists or the local community. By creating a place of exchange Play Me, I’m Yours invites the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment.
We are delighted to announce that Play Me, I’m Yours is currently live in Nicosia, Cyprus until 26 October 2014. More 2014/15 cities will be announced in due course – so watch this space! Read More...

This piano is a little difficult to find, but worth the effort. Ask for the Reminiscence Room at reception and entertain the nurses and the elderly folk and make everyone's day!

Who is Stephen Saunders? I know not. He was happily doing his thing on the second day the pianos were sitting out in front of the Arts Centre on the lawn. There were at least four pianos with all sorts of people tinkling. Listen to Stephen play and there is a story there. Tried to locate him via Facebook to let him know this is here but no banannas :/
