Play Me, I’m Yours


JUN 15 – 30, 2012

The Utah Museum of Contemporary Art is thrilled to welcome artist Luke Jerram’s international sidewalk sensation, Play Me, I’m Yours.

Members of the public and closet musicians alike are invited to sit down and play these wonderful pianos, painted by Utah’s premiere contemporary artists and placed in the public spaces of downtown Salt Lake City for two brief weeks.  This is your chance to add song to the urban buzz and turn bustling streets into an improvised concert hall.

Touring internationally since 2008, more than 500 pianos have been installed in 22 cities across the globe, from New York to Sydney, and now Salt Lake City, bearing the simple invitation ‘Play Me, I’m Yours.’ The project has reached more than two million people worldwide, with each new city that commissions the work becoming part of a growing legacy.

Please join us for an opening reception on June 15, 7-9 PM with special guest pianist Eric Rich.

Visit slcstreetpianos.com for details and piano locations. The public is invited to upload videos, photos, and stories on the website to share their interaction with the pianos.
