The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art is preparing an exhibit titled “Guitars! Roundups to Rockers,” which will feature more than 130 guitars owned by Roy Rogers, Charlie Christian, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Woody Guthrie, Buddy Holly, Les Paul and others. Opening March 9, the exhibit explores the Western connections of guitars and artists. The experience, including interactive content, will appeal to guitar fans, musicians, and music lovers of genres from Western swing to rock, punk, and jazz. The exhibit is supported by ongoing programming, including films, guitar instruction, a guitar “corral” that offers guests a chance to pluck and strum, live performances, and more.
