Pianos on State has been enlivening Santa Barbara’s downtown for eleven years now, spontaneously reintroducing music and art into people’s everyday lives. While the safety considerations that COVID-19 asks of all of us mean that this year Pianos on State will need to be experienced differently, the need for music and art and enlivenment are needed now more than ever. We need your art!

This year, painted pianos will be transported to beloved performing arts venues the Lobero, the Santa Barbara Bowl, the Marjorie Luke Theatre, SOHO, and Center Stage Theater to be featured in virtual concerts. Pianos will be painted gorgeously at the Community Arts Workshop by local artists, as always, with thorough COVID safety measures. There will also be a livestream from the CAW with local musicians and community members.

We are incredibly grateful to all our sponsors for their generous sustaining support in this extraordinary year. We would love it if you too would consider donating to support Pianos on State! (All donations tax-deductible.)

Pianos on State is collaborative organized by the Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative & CAW, the Santa Barbara Bowl, the Santa Barbara County Office of Arts and Culture, the Santa Barbara Education Foundation and Downtown Santa Barbara, Inc. The lead organizer this year is the Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative, which is also serving as the fiscal agent for the project. All donations go to support the costs of Pianos on State.
