GuitarMania® is a Greater Cleveland community public art project that seeks to raise money for its two benefiting charities – United Way of Greater Cleveland and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum’s education programs. The project consists of large, 10-ft tall Fender® Stratocaster® guitars creatively transformed into works of art by local artists and national celebrities. The guitars are displayed on the city streets of Cleveland for residents and visitors to enjoy. Several of the guitars are also placed throughout the terminal and concourses of the Airport.
Cleveland artists and other rock-stars designed and decorated large fibreglass guitars then scattered them around downtown Cleveland.
Have a look here to see all these guitar sculptures on site in downtown Cleveland in 2002
