GuitarMania

GuitarMania was a public art exhibit that celebrated artistic excellence and diversity in Greater Phoenix and provided an opportunity to raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Education Fund. 10-foot-tall fiberglass Fender Stratocaster guitars were transformed into works of art. The Rock n’ Penny Roll guitar is covered with approximately 10,000 pennies. All of the pennies came from my lifelong collection of pennies and donations from friends. No pennies were bought specifically for this project. It took almost 100 hours to complete the guitar. Look closely, the front is “heads” and the back is “tails”. Guitars were on display throughout Greater Phoenix from September 2005 - February 2006.
