Six-String Masterpieces, an art show that raises funds for Little Kids Rock, which is a charity promoting music education, has been revived! Having started in 2006 and toured the country through much of 2007, Six-String Masterpieces is an art show that features Dean Guitars painted, illustrated and/or sculpted by some of today’s biggest music stars, including Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Dave Mustaine of Megadeth, Les Claypool of Primus, Scott Ian of Anthrax, and many, many more. The original auction in 2007 raised almost $200,000 and they are looking to continue their path towards building a musical education for children. This goal is being assisted by a partnership with Mesa Contemporary Arts in Mesa, Arizona. A very special exhibition is being held from Friday, Sept. 9th through Sunday, Dec. 4th and will feature brand new guitars as well as previous classics.
