Gibson Guitar CEO and Guitartown honorary chairman, Henry Juszkiewicz (pictured, center) presents the first two 10-foot-tall fiberglass guitars to world-renowned fashion designer Manuel (at left) and Hatch Showprints artist Jim Sherraden in Nashville. Guitartown is a public arts project that will feature 50 of the giant guitar sculptures--25 Gibson Les Paul models and 25 Gibson Chet Atkins Country Gentleman models-- to be artistically designed by local and nationally acclaimed visual artists and placed throughout Nashville in front of the city's landmarks and businesses for a period of one year. Manuel's Les Paul and Sherraden's Chet Atkins are the first two to be placed. A special unveiling of the completed sculptures will take place later this year.
