Twelve creatively decorated pianos have been installed for public use across Aberdeen today.
It’s part of touring artwork ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’, which is in the city for three weeks as part of a worldwide tour.
Business organisation Aberdeen Inspired has brought them here to draw people to the city centre, and its hoped they will enjoy the same success as the Wild Dolphin Statue Trail of 2014.
- The Aberdeen International Airport Arrivals Hall,
- Aberdeen Railway Station/Union Square Link Corridor,
- The Academy Shopping Centre Courtyard
- Bon Accord & St Nicholas,
- George Street (outside John Lewis)
- His Majesty’s Theatre
- King Street (outside ACT)
- St Nicholas Street, The Green,
- The Trinity Centre
- Union Plaza Forecourt.
Adrian Watson, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired, said: “Play Me, I’m Yours has become a global phenomenon in recent years and similar to the highly successful Wild Dolphin trail in 2014 and successfully operated in iconic cities around the world, including most recently Paris and Geneva. We believe that the pianos will capture the imagination of all who encounter them.
“This exhibition marks just one of a series of exciting projects that will encompass Aberdeen Inspired’s Summer of Art as we devise a programme of events that will help us increase footfall to the city as well as dwell time and spending.”
