CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — Pianos are popping up in front of a number of businesses on Third Street southeast in Cedar Rapids.

The Metro Economic Alliance has installed the latest in the NewBo District, in front of Brewhemia and the NewBo City Market.

One Brewhemia worker says she’s excited to see how it will affect the area.

“I personally find it awesome because we have that whole creative corridor thing coming in right now that’s really sparking a lot in Cedar Rapids and I think the pianos just along Third Street just really provide that essence,” said Michele O’Neal.

Local artists painted several pianos and plan to paint more.

You can check them out during business hours.
