Tidbits for travelers: pretty pianos

The pop-up piano phenomenon is spreading.

This summer Sing for Hope has sprinkled 88 artist-decorated pianos around New York City, including this one by William Conroy Lindsay at the Air Train Terminal.

Like the pianos around New York, anyone may sit down and play a tune on any of the painted pianos that have popped up in St. Paul, Minnesota.

That includes the piano at Minneapolis-St.Paul International Airport.

“The Jazz Masters Dojo,” painted by artist Jesse Golfis, is on the baggage claim level near the central escalators. Learn more about St. Paul’s Pianos on Parade project.
