Piano for Pyros: video and photos of Carleton's "Piano Burning"

Piano BurningI was one of the hundreds of curious onlookers gathered on Carleton's Bald Spot last night to witness "Piano Burning," a 1968 performance art piece by artist and composer Annea Lockwood. The artist and a few faculty members also held a well-attended Q&A session beforehand to place the work in a more academic context than "hey, look...a burning piano!" I shot a bunch of photos and a few video clips, and you can find more coverage of the event on Locally Grown, MPR, Kare11, the StarTribune, and the PioneerPress.

Thanks, Griff. That was the best campus photo op since Scarlett Johansson's visit last year!
