Guitart Auction to benefit Rhino’s

Rhino’s Youth Media Center announces its second Guitart Auction, to be held Thursday, April 16, 2009. It takes place at The Lodge, 101 E. 6th Street on the north-east corner of the Courthouse Square.
Bid on one-of-a-kind original artworks by Sam Bartlett, Anna Witte, Kurt Larsen, Jenny Kander, Mike Cagle, Lindsay Hine, Matt Traughber and Brad Fugate. Using playable electric guitars as the medium, these well-known Bloomington artists have painted, collaged, printed or otherwise artistically altered them into original works of art. Funds raised from the auction support Rhino’s free after-school programming for youth.

Each guitar is playable and an array of Bloomington’s best musicians will be on hand to entertain with them: Andy Cobine, Cathi & Stuart Norton, Dave Weber, Jim Krause, Jason Grove and Chris Gaal & his Pirate Band. Some of Bloomington’s favorite restaurants will supply tasty appetizers for the event. Plan to be treated to the flavors of Mandalay, Bombay House, Malibu Grill, Anatolia, Mother Bear’s and Bobby’s Too. Wine and beer will be available in a secure area.

.Tickets to the auction are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Pick up yours at Rhino’s, 331 S. Walnut, during business hours. Call 333-3430 and visit for more details.
