For the past three weeks, Angelenos have had the opportunity to sit down and play the piano at 30 locations around town as a part of the "Play Me, I'm Yours" public art exhibition. Now you can take one of the pianos home—for the right price.

The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra has announced that it will be auctioning off six of the pianos used in the exhibition online. The other pianos will be donated to schools and community groups around town, according to KCET.

The starting bids on eBay begin at $150 (or you can buy it now for $20,000). The six pianos were painted by artists Danny Heller, Alexander Mihaylovich, Raoul De La Sota & Pola Lopez of Avenue 50 Studio, Frank Romero, Kent Twitchell and Frank Cubillos.
