You have seen the Sculpture in the Streets’ “Play Me I’m Yours” pianos for months and now they really can be yours. Thirteen functional and colorful art pieces disguised as public pianos are being auctioned off by The Downtown Albany Business Improvement District. Bids for the pianos will be accepted via email until Sept. 5

I never got out to see all 13 pianos, so I’m not certain which one I plan on bidding  yet. If there was a self-playing electric piano, you can count on me bidding on that one. I will sit there and pretend to play it for hours waiting for someone to find it funny. That will be money well spent in my book.

How to bid: Email Kris Sigsby, ksigsby@downtownalbany.org before Sept. 5.
