"As a growing international arts hub, it is very exciting to have Miami join the ranks of other major cities in hosting this wonderful project," said the Honorable Mayor Manny Diaz. The launch of the project also kicks off the official Miami GuitarTown "Call for Artists." Visual artists who are interested in becoming part of the project and painting one of the 10-foot sculptures to be put on display in the citywide event can pick up an application at the Gibson Guitar Entertainment Relations Showroom located at 180 NE 39th St., Suite 200, Miami, Florida 33137 between the hours of 11am-4pm weekdays. Deadline for completed applications is October 3, 2008 at 5pm EDT. Visual artists may also download the official application and template by visiting www.miamiguitartown.com. Information regarding applications, official rules and regulations and general information can also be obtained by calling the official Miami GuitarTown hotline at 1-866-321-4213 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Once all applications are received by interested artists, the official steering committee will vote on the designs and notify each artist. Visual artists who participate will be included in large scale publicity campaigns, promotional events and catalogs.
"Miami is a dynamic international city and makes for the perfect backdrop for a project as colorful, exciting and innovative as Gibson GuitarTown," said Henry Juszkiewicz, Chairman and CEO of presenting sponsor Gibson Guitar. "We look forward to helping the charities who will benefit from the project and combining the sounds of Miami with the artistry of South Florida."
Individuals, organizations or corporations interested in sponsoring a Miami GuitarTown sculpture or guitar can contact the organizers by calling (305) 573-3523 or by emailing email@example.com. All sponsor benefits and levels are outlined on the official website or can be customized to suit a sponsor's interests and requirements. Each sculpture will be sponsored and corporate partners have the ability to help decide on the design and artistry of the sculpture as well as placement in the city.

The concept will have a huge impact in the community and provide enormous publicity and promotion for the popular City of Miami, as well as provide another interesting opportunity to attract tourists from around the world.
