Pitch to legislator when meeting up to play the piano: 

I love the idea behind Street Pianos Boston because it puts art in public spaces and shows that the arts are truly for everyone. There’s a big connection between the arts and public policy. Having a Street Piano at the State House helps tell that story. Thousands of arts organizations receive state funding through the Massachusetts Cultural Council to do their work, including projects like Street Pianos Boston, which bring arts directly to the people. Thank you for your support of arts and culture. The creative community looks forward to working with you to integrate arts and culture into public policy that helps to build a more healthy and vibrant Massachusetts.
