The Klamath Piano Project – Fun With Kids

The Klamath Piano Project is in its third year, giving local artists a chance to show off their art in a creative way while “providing a space for the community to gather, celebrate and make spontaneous connections with one another” while being fun for kids and the family as a whole.  Pianos are donated from community members, and through an application process artists are chosen to paint each piano.

It’s kind of a scavenger hunt to find beautifully painted pianos throughout Klamath Falls.  We found the map online and then found the pianos as we were walking downtown just doing our thing.  We ate dinner at our favorite pizza spot in Klamath, Rodeos Pizza, and there was a piano right outside the restaurant.  We continued our walk downtown and meandered our way south to the court house.  Downtown alone we found six pianos!

We love the imagination and creativity that each artist has in painting their piano.  Make sure to take the time to explore each individual piano, you will find hidden treasures in every nook and cranny; words of encouragement, tiny critters and flowers.  A great place to play I-spy with your kids.

Other places you will find pianos include parks in the area including Moore Park, Mills-Kiwanis Park, and Veterans Memorial Park.  If you want to check them out they are put out just in time for Memorial Day weekend and are out through Labor Day weekend.  We can’t wait to see what the artists come up with this year!
