Eiteljorg Museum Opens One-of-a-Kind Guitar Exhibit


Guitars! is supported by ongoing programming, including films, guitar instruction, a guitar "corral" that offers guests a chance to pluck and strum, live performances and more. Highlights include:

Opening Day featuring a performance by Cowboy Celtic (March 9)
On opening day (and the second Saturday of each month) guests can live out their rock star dreams. Get a rock 'n' roll airbrush tattoo or a guitar-wielding caricature from artist Mike Altman. Plus, listen to local bands and take in a guitar-related flick. Cowboy Celtic's afternoon performance, beginning at 2 p.m., is included in museum admission.

Film Screening: "The Wrecking Crew" (April 13)
Guests are welcome to join us for the Midwestern premiere of The Wrecking Crew at 4 p.m. Denny Tedesco, producer and director of this award-winning film will introduce the story of the nearly-anonymous LA studio musicians who were Phil Spector's "wall of sound" and played on the top hits of the 1960s. Screening is included with general museum admission.
