South Orange has always been known to have an artistic vibe. But now, the town is really putting their commitment to the arts on display. The most recent example is the “Playin’ Around” project that was created through a partnership with the South Orange Performing Arts Center. The intent is to marry both visual and performing arts using the town of South Orange as the gallery to showcase local talent.
Artists create paintings on actual pianos which are donated. Shoppers are encouraged to take a break and play a tune or two on the pianos which are displayed in 6 locations. Even if chopsticks is all you have mastered, its enough to take time out of your routine and put a smile on someone’s face. You can view them all by using the map below:
