The auction features guitars — electric and acoustic — decorated by local artists, celebrities, and sports figures. The guitars are transformed, painted, tiled, airbrushed or gilded in gold – whatever the decorator desires – and are put on display at the Eisemann Center and sold in a silent auction for the duration of the festival. Proceeds benefit the NETWORK of Community Ministries and the fine art programs of the Richardson Independent School District. Click here to learn about how the auction works.
