Music always connects the skiing and the snowboarding communities together besides the mountains. Some listen to it when they are riding and some just listen to it during après-ski. Many also enjoy to play it too. For those lovers of art and music, specifically guitars, this event is for you.
ArtGuitars will soon be on display at the Guitar Center of Denver and these ArtGuitars will be auctioned off during Guitar Town weekend at Copper Mountain, August 12 – 14, 2011. In the spirit of the “Chicago Cows”, artists from around the community and Colorado have designed, decorated, painted and created the ArtGuitars from damaged guitars, kindly donated by event sponsor Guitar Center of Denver.
The guitars are mostly damaged or otherwise unsellable as instruments, but as works of art, and as fundraisers, they are in many ways, priceless. You may bid now on the guitars at Guitar Center, as well as throughout the Guitar Town weekend. All proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the Copper Environmental Foundation. The guitar pictured to the right is from The Signtologist and it’s titled, “Johnny Cash R.I.P” (photo by Kelly Eppinger, www.thesigntologist.com).
