Music enthusiasts (guitar players in particular), artists and recyclers will love this exhibition. Beau Theige, a husband, father, and hobby rancher living on the windswept plains of North Dakota found a passion. He isn’t a guitar player but was instantly intrigued by this varied and unique craft, to create handmade guitars from discarded stuff such as cake pans, license plates, cigar boxes and more. If you want to get trendy, it’s called “up-cycling.” Each is handcrafted, inspired by everyday utilitarian objects, antiques, or plain old trash. Half art, half junk, all guitar. In the artist’s words, “Let’s change the way you make music.”
Beau encourages visitors to the exhibit to try his guitars and play a song or two.
