Santa Barbara Bowl Outreach is proud to help present the 9th Annual Pianos On State, taking place this year from October 2-24. For the past 9 years, the Bowl has collaborated with other local Santa Barbara organization including the City of Santa Barbara, Downtown Santa Barbara, and Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative (to name a few), to put on this awesome event that countless Santa Barbara locals look forward to each year.
Pianos on State selects a small number of lucky artists who will be given a budget for art supplies, a piano, and the free will to decorate the piano however they envision. Upon completion, the pianos will be displayed along State Street for three weeks so anyone can enjoy them and create music. Check out the Pianos on State website for more information on the event and past artists.
