Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram,
which has been touring internationally since 2008. More than 700
pianos have now been installed in 30 cities across the globe, from New
York to London bearing the simple invitation Play Me, I’m Yours. The
project has reached more than two million people worldwide, with each
new city that commissions the work becoming part of a growing legacy.
In 2012 the City of London Festival celebrated
its golden anniversary on a grand scale, presenting Play Me, I’m Yours
with 50 golden street pianos spread across London landmarks and beauty
spots for three weeks, from 24 June until 13 July 2012.
There are three Street Pianos still available to play in London two at St Pancras International Station
– one is located near the Eurostar arrivals gate and the other in the
main shopping arcade. These pianos are being regularly repaired and
tuned courtesy of St Pancras Station Management team. The third Street
Piano is located at Herne Hill Railway Station in South London and is being cared for by local residents and shopkeepers with support from Herne Hill Forum. Watch this brilliant film about the Herne Hill piano.
