A while back, we told you about how Kaces was collaborating with the Petaluma Phoenix Theatre and the Gibson Foundation to auction 20 artist-painted Gibson guitars (cradled in Kaces Old Glory hardshell cases). – The guitars are now coming in and the time has come for the downtown Petaluma merchants to display them in their front windows, in preparation for an online auction and Gala event on February 28
Check out this picture! – Our good friends at the Pelican Art Gallery were the first to incorporate the artist-commissioned Kaces “Old Glory” guitar cases in their window display. – Watch for more, coming soon!
We want you to know about a fantastic place for young rockers to study, hang out, skate and learn about the music business. It’s called the Phoenix Theatre Center. Kaces is donating some very cool hard shell guitar cases to these good people for a fund raiser in collaboration with the Gibson Foundation.
It’s a Guitar Gala that will feature approximately 20 guitars (donated by the Gibson Foundation) and wrapped in a Kaces “Old Glory” hardshell case. Each guitar will be artistically customized by local and nationally recognized visual artists, musicians and celebrities. These one-of-a-kind ‘art guitars’ will be brought to the Phoenix for an open gallery showing, after which they will be auctioned off online.
Artists already committed to this Guitar Gala project include: George Lucas, Devo, Seth Green of Robot Chicken, Stan Lee of Marvel Comics, Les Claypool of Primus, Jack Haye, Michael Garlington, Chris Jahly, Anna Oneglia, Lia May-Bird, Jerod Powell, Josh Staples and Jason Jenkins.
100% of the proceeds will be dedicated to supporting thefree-of-charge after-school music, theater and arts programs for at-risk youth of the North Bay.
Stay tuned for more details about how you can participate and possibly win one of these great guitar outfits.
