Own a piece of Miami history

The Biscayne Bay piano is gone.

Burned out, discarded and mysteriously sitting on a sandbar in the middle of Biscayne Bay for the better part of January, it captured the imagination of the nation and the world....even making network news programs.

On the 27th of January it was removed and it now sits in a warehouse somewhere.

For many, the story of the piano and how it got there epitomized the occasional wackiness we love about South Florida.

But now, it's gone.


You can now own a photographic remnant of the piano.

My friend Cindy Seip, who happens to be a top-notch designer has designed and printed one of my photographs of the piano.

The image is framed by a black border and printed on heavy stock in an 11x14 poster size suitable for framing.

The poster bears the dates the piano was on the sandbar: Jan. 2 - Jan.27 and also the latitude and longitude.

We've printed up a limited edition of 20.

One can be yours for $17 plus $4 shipping.

Order one and within days your poster will be hand-delivered to your door by a uniformed member of the United States Postal Service.

I will also sign each poster at no extra charge.

If you live in Miami and want to pick up the poster and save shipping charges we can do that also.

This poster would make a great gift for a friend up north who jokes with you about this place we call home.

But get yours while supplies last!

Click on my email in the upper right hand corner of this blog if you want one. Remember, there are only 20.

  1. I am thinking the AP bureau in Tampa Bay needs one of these!
