Wow - this event sounds awesome! I love the idea of the mystery, the combination of lots of different art forms and pianos! Jill... I am not the least bit surprised that you are leading this event, you're amazing! Wish I lived closer to join in the fun!

This is sooo cool!
I'm gonna play a piano- even though I can't play- just for the cool factor and to get my pic taken.

Kudos to PCAC! Also to Civic Arts Commission for partial funding and Howard Seebach for the piano idea.

One of the things that's so great about putting on a big event is that it takes a multitude of people from all over the community. And one of the things that is so hard about an event like this is that not everyone gets adequately credited and thanked. From the beginning, The Big Draw has been a community effort, supported by the City of Pleasanton, the Civics Art Commission, Pleasanton Cultural Arts Council, PDA,artists,teachers,musicians, merchants and more. Nothing would have happened without these groups and individuals and everything is happening because of them. Thank you to all!
