The Richardson Wildflower! Arts and Music Festival starts today and continues through Sunday, May 16. During the event, don t miss the Art Guitar Auction, sponsored by the Firewheel, Richardson and Campbell/Coit offices of Ebby Halliday, Realtors. You ll see them out working the show all weekend long at the Eisemann Center.
Since this program was introduced at the 11th Anniversary of the Wildflower! Arts & Music Festival, it has won both state and international awards for Best New Fund-Raising Program . Festival sponsors, Richardson junior high and high school students, celebrities, sports figures and artists were all invited to enter a decorated guitar. Guitar entries, either electric or acoustic, have been transformed, painted, tiled, airbrushed and gilded in gold. You ll be sure to find some musical works of art.
The guitars are on display in the Eisemann Center and sold in a silent auction for the duration of the Festival. Proceeds from the auction benefit the NETWORK of Community Ministries and the fine arts programs in the secondary level of the R.I.S.D.
Our own Machelle Mull designed an Ebby Guitar , which will be in the auction. The theme is The Faces of Ebby. Over 1,600 faces of all the company s Sales Associates form Ebby s face and the lettering on the guitar. Ebby Halliday, Realtors has been a longtime supporter of the auction.
