t’s summer in St. Louis and the Delmar Loop is kicking things off with a 4-day celebration of the Arts with Loop Arts Fest.

 

Piano Street Art celebrating local musicians by G Gamache

We kicked off the fun at the end of May with the installation of 8 pianos located primarily on the Loop Trolley stops (and also at the U City Public Library).  Our own Jon Gamache painted the piano located in front of The Pageant Theatre with images of contemporary St. Louis musicians.  We encourage everyone to take a stroll down the street – and feel free to play a tune.  Many thanks to Jackson Piano for installing these pianos as part of the St. Louis Make Music Day celebrations.
