Five pianos will be transformed into works of art and placed around downtown Rome. The public is invited to play the pianos at their leisure, as well as enjoy pop-up performances throughout the season. Local businesses and volunteers will help cover and uncover the pianos daily, as well as when it rains. Local artists and groups of artists painting and decorating the pianos include: James Schroeder, Siri Selle, Clint Dillard, Swerve Art Studio, Rome Knitterati and Turn Your Back on Hate. The five pianos were donated by Rome residents Anne White, Ruth Cain, Susan Babcock and Robert Brown. Local piano students will perform during opening day with performances starting a 11 a.m. and running until 4:15 p.m. The performances are made possible thanks to the support of Rome piano teachers Kyla Zollitsch, Shelley Reid and Kathryn Nobles. Everyone is encouraged to share Keys to Rome experiences by tagging photos and videos with #KeystoRome. Pop-up concert announcements will be made on the Facebook page: Facebook/KeystoRomeGA.
