Guitar Town Sunset Strip Unveils Giant Gibson Guitar Sculptures
Guitar Town Sunset Strip, a public art project featuring 26 10-foot-tall Les Paul guitars placed along Hollywood’s famous Sunset Strip, was unveiled last week. The event kicked off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and vintage car parade along Sunset Boulevard.
Each guitar sculpture was made by a local artist to commemorate assorted musicians and personalities associated with the Sunset Strip including The Doors, Mötley Crüe, Jimi Hendrix, The Roxy, The Whiskey A Go Go, Slash, Cheech & Chong, Ozzy Osbourne, The Runaways and Beach Boy Brian Wilson, who was present at the launch event.
Guitar Town Sunset Strip will be on display for the next six months before the guitars are sold at auction, with all proceeds going to charities and nonprofit organizations.
