When Mark Maziarz, along with Alison Butz, established Art Pianos for All, an art project where decorated pianos are placed in accessible areas to be played and enjoyed by the public, he had no idea how popular the instruments would be.
So far, Maziarz has placed pianos at the Kimball Art Center, the Silver Star plaza, the Park City transit center, the South Summit Aquatic and Fitness Center in Kamas, the Eccles Center for the Performing Arts and the newest location, at Park City Coffee Roasters at Redstone.
“We originally wanted to place two pianos, but now have six,” Maziarz told The Park Record. “That makes me kind of proud of what has been happening.”
Although Butz is no longer involved in the project, Maziarz has taken it upon himself to carry on.
“What keeps me doing this is some of the people who play are seasonal workers from another county who have played at home,” he said. “They play our pianos every day or every week and use them as practice instruments.” Click here to read entire story.
