Downtown Kenosha is hosting the area’s newest (and most musical) public art project this summer! Keyed Up Kenosha features 12 pianos designed and decorated by local artists and placed throughout the Downtown district for the community to play and enjoy all summer long! From Chopsticks to Beethoven and everything in between, visitors are invited to stop and play their favorite tunes as they explore Downtown Kenosha. A 13th piano is on display at the Kenosha Area CVB’s I-94 Visitor Information Center. Following the exhibit in mid-August, pianos will be auctioned to benefit future Downtown events and promotions. Keyed Up Kenosha is a collaborative project by Downtown Kenosha, Inc., the City of Kenosha and Kenosha News with generous support from Family Piano Co. and Uline.
