More Public Pianos To Be Placed Around Atlanta

Each Play Me Again Piano has a name. This one, "Liam," was named for the artist who painted it: 9-year-old Liam Agans, who paints as part of his therapy for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Perhaps you’ve seen them: colorful pianos around the city for anyone to play. Many of these instruments are courtesy of a family project-turned-nonprofit called Play Me Again Pianos.

The goal is to place 88 pianos in locations around Atlanta. Public pianos are popping up all across the world, but what makes Play Me Again Pianos slightly different is that the group hopes to make the pianos permanent.

President and founder Jason Brett said, “When the pianos stay long term, they start to create relationships within those communities.”

Two more pianos will be unveiled next month: one at Ponce City Market on Aug. 6 and one at Atlantic Station on Aug. 25.
