Painted piano in Avon made to be played
AVON — As part of the Pianos on Parade program, the town of Avon has placed a colorful piano in public for anyone to enjoy.
Local children and artists designed the paint job on the piano, and it is located between the Avon Public Library and Avon Recreation Center.
Students at Avon Elementary School painted the piano and bench, adorned with mountains, chairlifts, aspen trees and the Colorado state flag.
There is a cover to protect the piano from rain, and the Avon Recreation Center staff will help manage it.

“I think children and adults in the town will love this piano and appreciate that it’s here to be played,” said Avon Town Council member Amy Phillips.
Avon Mayor Jennie Fancher introduced the Pianos on Parade program, and the project is funded by a charitable organization.
The piano will be out all summer for anyone looking to tickle the ivories.
