Seventy colorful and unique guitar sculptures, designed by local and talented visual artists, can be found throughout the streets and businesses of Austin. Each is a “one of a kind” piece of art depicting favorite musical or Texas themes. In the Fall of 2007, the sculptures will be auctioned off and will benefit four local charities: The Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM); The Austin Museum of Art (AMOA); American Youthworks; and the Austin Children's Museum.
