Waukesha Public Arts Committee Meeting to present Concept Drawing of first 5 Murals of Waukesha GuitarTown Mural Project done during the first weekend of June.
WAUKESHA – The Waukesha GuitarTown committee will be presenting the concept drawing for the first five painted wall murals which are a part of Waukesha’s Gibson GuitarTown project this year to Waukesha’s Public Art Committee at 5:30 pm at City Hall Council Chambers for their approval.
The murals are the first of a series of murals that Waukesha GuitarTown has planned for 2013. The murals will focus on Les Paul and the history of Waukesha. The murals are being done by the national acclaimed WallDogs, who have done many projects around the United States. Samples of their work can be viewed as close as the murals in Plymouth, Wisconsin.
The five walls selected are all in Downtown Waukesha and will become a part of the fabric of downtown, the same way as the 10-foot tall guitars that are currently on Waukesha GuitarTown’s Walking Tour.
More about GuitarTown 2013
In addition to the murals the Waukesha GuitarTown project will have 15 ten-foot fiberglass guitars added to the 10 already completed guitars on display, and which are featured on the Downtown Waukesha’s Guitar Walking Tour Pick. The 15 new guitars for 2013 will bring the total to 25 guitars.
Gibson Guitar Corporation has chosen Waukesha, the birth and resting place of Les Paul, inventor of the solid body electric guitar, for an encore of its nationally acclaimed GuitarTown public arts project.
Waukesha GuitarTown 2013 will build on the momentum of last year and will continue to unite Waukesha area business and cultural communities.
