This “Gatorized” Steinway at University of Florida benefits the School of Music

Those crazy Gators are at it again!  Check out this piano I spied in the lobby of University of Florida‘s Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Institute this afternoon:

Gatorized Steinway

This Steinway, “Gatorized” by artist Chris Cruz, is a fundraising effort on behalf of University of Florida’s School of Music. It certainly brings music appreciation to a whole new level! Customized with a player attachment, this grand piano plays “Go Gators” among other faves.

Bidding starts at $21,000 (and would anyone be surprised if I told you there is already a bid for $21,000?) The auction is open through September 30 2010, 11 PM Eastern Time.
