The Red Piano Project began as a stop along the 2013 Farm/Art DTour. ArtsLink adopted a turn of the century upright piano, tuned it up, painted it bright red and placed in an alfalfa field adjacent to a cow pasture on a county road along the DTour route. After the 10-day DTour, the piano was donated to Aunt Ozie’s Cafe, a Loganville-based business supporting live music.
Similary, ArtsLink featured turn of the century uprights on the 2015 and 2016 DTour routes that were also donated to local businesses that support the arts. The 2015 piano was donated to Reedsburg’s Touchdown Tavern, and the 2016 piano went to The Branding Iron in Lime Ridge.
