ArtGuitar gathers more than 20 artists from Colorado to create art from damaged and unusable guitars donated by Guitar Center of Denver. Their work is up for bid, with proceeds benefitting the Copper Environmental Foundation, an employee-funded non-profit organization that supports and funds environmental projects and programs in Colorado’s Summit and Lake Counties. Last year’s auction raised more than $1,000 and organizers hope to double proceeds this year by inviting more artists and introducing a new gallery viewing August 14.
Guitars are on display and open for bidding in Denver art galleries and Guitar Center. They will also be on display during Guitar Town weekend. Winners will be announced. An online bidding will also take place August 9 and 10. Learn more at coppercolorado.com.
