Public piano

piano2.jpgThere’s a public piano now, right out there on the street. This guy (Jeremy Ray) painted it. The next time we passed, someone was playing it, my younger daughter started singing along, and a man and his kids watched and videotaped. Everyone high-fived afterwards before we all went our separate ways. It’s the way life should be. The sad part? Things like this are increasingly illegal in many cities. Here’s why public art matters.
