Pianos on Parade

Pianos on Parade is back for a third annual parade celebrating art and music throughout Auburn!  This temporary art project takes the shape of seven art-modified pianos that anyone can see and play. Previously only located in Downtown Auburn, the program has expanded to Les Gove Park and Lakeland Hills. Be sure to visit all the locations. Play our Pianos on Parade, take a photo or video and share it with all of Auburn!Mary Ellen Bowers_Piano on Parade

AVCA member Mary Ellen Bowers has a piano on display at 101 East Main Street, outside of Nelson’s Jewelry on the corner of Auburn Way and Main Street. She was inspired by the majestic view from Auburn’s Centennial Viewpoint Park and created a torn paper collage to depict this impressive overlook.  Using hand-painted paper, Mary Ellen recreated the view of Mt. Rainier and the park’s sculpture “The Long Look” (by Brad Rude.)

Check out all the wonderful pianos before they disappear on Monday, September 8th!
