The artist, Christine Gollner, joked that she painted the deer on the piano to annoy the mayor as the problematic deer cause Nils Jensen so much grief and work.

Jensen praised the excellent work of the Oak Bay Art Laureate Barbara Adams.

Six pianos painted by Gillian Redwood, Robert Amos, Jennifer McIntyre, Christine Gollner, Sherry Tompalski, and Senior Art Students at St. Michaels University School will be installed at Loon Bay Park, Estevan Village, McNeill Bay, Turkey Head Walkway, Willows Beach, and Oak Bay Village during Arts and Culture Fortnight, Aug. 9 to 23.

The pianos remain out to Sept. 7.
