Find and play Barry under the pavilion at the playground.
We are thrilled by our partnership with the City of Alpharetta and Arts Alpharetta. Barry is the fourth piano we’ve placed in an Alpharetta park and we’re honored to see the Alpharetta community embracing this musical movement. The connection between the city and the arts community is truly powerful.
“In our ongoing effort to provide an infusion of art and music to the citizens of Alpharetta, we are thrilled to have yet another talented artist, Leilani Saxon, show off her skills in the fourth installation of the City of Alpharetta’s street piano collection, Barry,” said Morgan Rodgers, department director, City of Alpharetta Recreation, Parks and Cultural Services.
Barry’s new name came with a heroic makeover. Leilani designed and painted a superhero theme, “The Flash,” hence the shared name with Barry Allen. “I love the idea of bringing old pianos back to life!” Leilani said. “I figured if the piano was going into a park, I wanted to do something I thought the kids would love, and my family has been watching ‘The Flash’ series since the beginning. We love the Flash!”
The piano will live permanently in its new Webb Bridge Park home under a pavilion near the playground.
Barry's Birthdate: August 5th, 2018
