is public art project that raised money for the United Way of Greater Cleveland and the Hall of Fame Museum's education programs. The statues are oversize Fender Stratocaster guitars that are transformed by local artists and national celebrities and displayed on the streets of Cleveland. The statues are sponsored by corporations, organizations, and individuals.
The circular wall is topped by a stack of 45 rpm records complete with the little, yellow plastic spindle adapter in the center. As I was placing the adapter in the center hole
Topping the stack of singles is 2003 Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inductee Elvis Costello in an approximation of his trademark stance from the cover of his debut album, My Aim Is True. Unlike the guitars at the base, Elvis's guitar is based on the Fender Jazzmaster.
Of the comments this figure received, one of my favorites was, "Nice Fingernails," so be sure to click the image for the larger view. Apparently the fingernails are something to behold."
