Can you hear it? That’s the sound of music coming from The Eastmark’s Great Park. Play Me, I’m Yours! – an original art installation that’s part a larger City of Mesa program to engage people in the arts – will be part of Eastmark for the next six weeks.
The British artist, Luke Jerram, originally conceived Play Me I’m Yours! as an interactive installation that would connect people to the arts. Years later, this program has travelled the globe. Right now it’s across Mesa including a piano in Eastmark! Learn more: https://www.facebook.com/MesaArtsCenterAZ
Here’s your chance to show your mom that those piano lessons taken way back when paid off. Come on out, sit down, play those ivories… snap some selfie videos or photos of your fingers in action and upload them to Eastmark’s street piano page: http://streetpianos.com/mesa2016/pianos/22-eastmark/.
Bring your friends. Or your band. If someone in your family can accompany you on the flute or guitar, bring them with you to the Palm Plaza and play. Let’s show the world what musical talent and support for the arts we have here at Eastmark. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #streetpianosmesa on those selfies.
Wanna see all the pianos on the Mesa tour? Come into The ‘Mark to grab a map with all the piano locations. You can make a day of playing your favorite piano tunes all around Mesa. There are installation at the ballpark, the airport, MCC, Mesa Arts Center, and more.
More about Eastmark’s piano:
For the past few weeks, Eastmark residents have been collaborating with local artist Rosalie Vaccaro to create this engaging art piece for our community. Her inspiration started with Eastmark’s history, resulting in a beautifully painted piano that depicts the past, present and future of Eastmark in one great piece. The front of the piano evokes an automobile, complete with an AZ license plate and working headlights. On the sides of the piano, Vaccaro used the Eastmark logo to demonstrate how homes are coming to the community and growing the area. Eastmark residents will recognize the artwork on the back of the back of the piano immediately – it displays the Eastmark Great Park during a special event including a couple sitting on chairs, dogs playing and kids throwing Frisbees .
