An artistic approach to music

Artists and piano players alike can sit and play music on one of four painted pianos distributed throughout downtown Sequim.

Keying Around kicked off on Friday, July 7, where the public is invited to sit and play music on pianos located at four different venues in Sequim for the second consecutive year, according to organizer and artist Natalie Andrzejeski.

Andrzejeski has been painting pianos for similar events for the past eight years and believes painted pianos create a more inviting environment for local community members who wish to play.

“Art makes it more approachable,” Andrzejeski said.

There are four pianos painted by local artists such as Jake Reichner’s Sequim High School AP art class and the “L Squared” team including artists Luke Kisena and Luke Silliman.

The pianos are available for the public to play music at the Civic Center, Over the Fence, The Emerald Northwest Grill &Public House and next to U.S. Bank in Sequim.

They will remain on display to the public until Aug. 4 when the pianos will be auctioned off with proceeds benefiting art projects in Sequim. For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/KeyingAround/.
