feel the beat
Inspired by the original Main Street Piano program, Keys to the City, Downtown Grand Junction is once again home to interactive art in the form of pianos.
NEVER SKIP A BEAT
Street Beats launched in the summer of 2018 after receiving three pianos as a gift from the Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra and has a unique twist – each piano placed Downtown is painted by a local artist. Artists are selected through an application process where designs are submitted to Downtown GJ.
Street Beats also involves the Downtown merchants, as stores that have pianos in front of them ‘adopt’ the piece to look after it, put benches inside after hours, and cover the piano if it rains.
