Mr. N and I have seen lots and lots of weird things on our walks. Living in Portland, it’s part of the territory. We’ve run into people from the Easter Bunny crawl (people dress up as bunnies and bar hop), a couple that regularly walks around with giant puppets, and giant beer bottle mascots napping in the grass.
A few days ago, we were walking in a park that we haven’t been to in a while and stumbled across a piano. What is a lone piano doing in a park by itself you may ask.
The piano is part of Piano! Push Play!, an organization that rescues old pianos, teams up with artists to decorate them and puts them in public spaces during the summer for people to play. After the summer, the pianos get donated to community centers and schools.
This particular piano is in Cathedral Park and dubbed the Scarlatti. It was decorated by Mette Hornung Rankin. Definitely one of the coolest things we’ve seen on one of our walks.
Have you run into any cool or weird or interesting things while out on a walk?
