Labeled the “Best New Fund-Raising Program” both state wide and internationally, the Wildflower! Art Guitar Auction invites Festival sponsors, local artists, celebrities, and sports figures to create an entry by transforming an acoustic or electric guitar into a creative piece of work, through their own choice of expressive art (paint, tiles, airbrushing, etc.). Guitars are then displayed over the Festival weekend in the Eisemann Center and sold in a silent auction open to all Festival attendees. The silent auction will close on Sunday, May 17 at 3:00 p.m. All proceeds from the auction benefit NETWORK of Community Ministries and the Richardson ISD Fine Arts Programs.
For additional information on participating in the auction as an artist, contact Wildflower! at (972) 744-4580.
