Logo of 2021 Painted Pianos

Painted Pianos is a unique art project designed to bring community members together while creating musical memories. This downtown activation promotes local artists who have shared their talents through paint and various artistic mediums on a variety of donated pianos. The project is a collaboration between Walnut Creek Downtown Business Association, the City of Walnut Creek and Steinway Piano Gallery.

The pianos are placed throughout downtown Walnut Creek for the public to play and share their musical talents. To view a map of the piano locations click here.
