The much-loved community piano located in downtown Lewisburg beside City Hall has returned after a brief hiatus, and is now sporting a new look.

Previously bearing a simple constellation design on a black background, the new paint job focuses around Dragon Wing Begonias, the red flowers chosen this year for the hanging baskets that adorn Lewisburg’s lampposts downtown.

The piano was unveiled during First Friday on July 6, and was painted by local artist Susanna Robinson, who was hired for the job by the Lewisburg in Bloom committee. Mayor John Manchester helped with the grand unveiling, and says that the city is looking into adding more pianos around town in the future.
