After hibernating all winter, the inaugural Fredonia Street Piano Project pianos returned to area locations on May 11.

Each piano was named by the artist: “Beneath Us, Between Us” (Erin Ruffino, '19), will be in Barker Commons; “Camo Drip” (Christy May, '21), will be placed outside the west entrance to Mason Hall on campus; and “Polka Dot Piano” (Jodie White, '17, '19, '23 and Stephen McChesney, '20, '22), will be at  the Dunkirk Boardwalk.

Buffalo-based Big L Windows & Doors, the primary sponsor of the inaugural year of the Fredonia Street Piano Project through the Fredonia College Foundation, is also connected to SUNY Fredonia. Bill Horbett Sr., president of Big L Windows & Doors, and Tom Walker, retired marketing director of the company, were part of the Department of Theatre Arts in the 1970s.
