Keys to the City – Call for Artists and Community Groups

Keys to the City – K2C 2017

All around town Fall 2017

Piano keys are coming to Beacon NY this Fall! Pianos and related art works will be placed in a number of public locations this September-October. This is a community participation project of BeaconArts. Start practicing now to perform for your friends and neighbors or put together your own flash mob concert!


There will be an opportunity for individual artists and interested community groups to decorate the pianos. Please use the contact below to submit a notice of interest so we can get this process started, which we are looking to do by Tuesday, July 18th. It is likely that the level of interest will exceed the number of pianos available so submit early. Most pianos will need to be playable but there is also an option of creating art works from piano parts. Final selections and locations will be chosen by committee. #keystobeacon

Keys to BeaconDONATIONS

This is an all- volunteer project undertaken by members of the Beacon community. Funding is minimal so we are accepting any donations and sponsorships from individuals and businesses. Your tax-deductible cash donations will be used to defray operating expenses and promotional materials. Any excess will be directed to create a fund to promote music education in Beacon. Art supplies and pianos are also welcome donation items. We have collected eight donated pianos so far and are open to receiving more. Due to the nature of the project, condition of pianos cannot be guaranteed or returned. If you have an old piano you are looking to get rid of, we will provide pick up from your location.
