Gretsch Guitar Art Program

The Art Guitar program, started in 2004, places eight guitars donated by the Gretsch Guitar Company to the Iowa Rock 'n Roll Music Association in the art departments of schools around Iowa every year where they are decorated in a musical theme. Visitors to the museum vote for their favorite guitar and the one with the most votes on Labor Day weekend wins. The top two receive gift certificates for art supplies.
