About "Play On, Athens!":
Inspired by similar programs nationwide, "Play On, Athens!" invites local artists to paint pianos (donated by community members, Athens Area Habitat ReStore, Chick Music, and Vic's Vintage) and will display them publicly around the Classic City, inviting our community to play them and share the joy of art and music Athens is known for.
For this first round, four local artists were invited to design and paint pianos: Kim Deakins, Darya Kalantari, Marisa Mustard and Eli Saragoussi. The finished pianos will be on display at ReStore for the reception before going to their final locations: Athens-Clarke County Library, Bishop Park, Athens Community Council on Aging, and The Classic Center.
