The downtown #StocktonPianos program was part of our place making initiative intended to contribute to the revitalization of Downtown Stockton. By bringing spontaneous music to our streets and interrupting the status quo of our daily experience, Music To Our Ears activates public areas and helps create a community that appreciates, interacts and takes ownership of the present and future of Downtown Stockton. This program is no longer active but you can still find the pianos throughout #DowntownStockton.
The pianos used in the program were donated to us and were paired up with local artists to be decorated. Each piano is an original piece of art representing an authentic picture of the artistic diversity of Stockton. They are placed throughout downtown under the stewardship of local business and/or property owners.
