GuitarTown is a public arts project that features 10-foot tall fiberglass Gibson guitars artistically designed by local and nationally acclaimed visual artists and placed throughout Nashville in front of the city's landmarks and businesses for a period of one year. The goal of the project is to unite the Nashville art, music and business communities behind the cause of raising money for numerous charitable organizations.
The custom guitars will be auctioned off at Gibson's GuitarTown Auction Gala on February 23, 2006 at BMI. All proceeds will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, The DISTRICT and United Way of Nashville.
