Two Watertown artists are bringing music to the streets of Boston through “Play Me, I’m Yours.”
Artists have painted some of the 75 pianos that will be placed in public places in Boston, Brookline, Cambridge and Somerville. The project is a work by artist Luke Jerram that’s been installed in 37 cities around the world.
Watertown’s Michael Wilson not only is creating one of the pieces, but was the lead technician for the 75 pianos. He grew up in Hudson and his mother is a professional artist.
Brian Gonzalez, who has a degree in graphic design and masters in opera, focused on a mix of visual art and music when painting his piano.
See these and other pianos from from Sept. 27 to Oct. 14. For more information about Play Me I'm Yours, visit celebrityseries.org or streetpianosboston.com. Exact locations and a map of the pianos will be announced by mid-September.
