At exactly noon on Thursday, 30 pianists sitting at 30 colorful pianos scattered at public spaces throughout Los Angeles County will simultaneously break into the first prelude of Bach's "Well-Tempered Clavier. " The so-called play-in will mark the Southern California debut of a globally oriented public art project called "Play Me, I'm Yours. " But the real fun won't begin until after the opening performances have finished. That's when the pianos - in locations that include L.A. Live and Monterey Park, USC and UCLA, as well as Santa Monica Pier and Old Pasadena - become available to the public, for anyone and everyone to play 24 hours a day for the next three weeks.

Parking restrictions are designed to facilitate the flow of traffic and assure the fair use of available curb space. If there is inequity in the rules, then the rules should be changed.
