*RECAP* Gibson Guitar "Art Assault" Charity Art Show and Auction • Miami Art Basel 12/02/2010

Gibson and Kramer Guitars teamed up with Outta My Mind Creations and MaiHiro, and launched ‘Art Assault’ on Art Basel in Miami on December 3rd, 2010! This was a large scale charity exhibition with a spotlight on electric guitars and designer toys, the incredible artists involved went beyond conventional designs and created truly unique works of art that were displayed in the trendy Gibson Showroom located in the heart of Miami's Design District.! Those guitars will be customized by some greats in the industry including: Michael Lau, Nakanari, Pete Fowler, Christian Jacobs (Yo Gabba Gabba), 123klan, Matt Waldman (Nooka), Camilla d’Errico, Ashley Wood, Long Vo, Lebo and Oscar-winning actor/artist Jeff Bridges. All of these will eventually be auctioned online with proceeds benefiting the Gibson Foundation!

The reception was quite a success with many visitors taking in the visual and aural stimulus produced by the work, whether it was from the Kramer Assault 220FR guitars, the Kidrobot 20" Dunny Superband "performing live" on a miniature stage, rocking out to live band and DJ Aba or trading Dunnys and other giveaways provided by Kidrobot and Juxtapoz magazine. Art Assault is on the brink of a tour, reaching mulitple cities in the United States and potentially around the globe, with new artwork being added to each stop, and the proceeds of the custom painted toys and guitars going to benefit the Gibson Foundation. Every stop brings the opportunity to have art and music collide to rock minds and hearts. Hit the jump to see a full photo slide show!
