‘Keys to our Town’ street piano summer campaign
Summer 2019

The Town of Cobourg invited cultural organizations within Northumberland County to paint and design one of three pianos for the ‘Keys to our Town’ street piano summer campaign. Each summer, donated pianos are painted by local artists and displayed in various locations throughout the downtown and waterfront area and passersby are encouraged to play. The concept was based on the “Play Me, I’m Yours” project by artists Luke Jerram, originating in Sheffield, England. The 2019 theme was What Does Culture Mean to You?

The AGN’s Youth Council worked on two piano’s to answer this question.
