“A Century of Guitars”
I was honored to be a part of this great exhibit. It focused on the evolution and artistry of the guitar in America through the 20th Century and its impact on popular music and culture. The museum did a wonderful job of creating this exhibit, and with the inclusion of 40 of my original oil paintings…Art that Rocks®, it all came together to invade the senses. Thanks to everybody that was able to join us! Word from the Museum is that they had close to 29,000 in attendance for the run of the show!

It’s difficult to capture all that this exhibit covers with these photos. If you’re in the Kenosha, WI area, it’s worth a visit.
