Austin, TX--The Dixie Chicks recently joined the impressive and growing list of celebrities who are lending their name in support of the Austin GuitarTown project. Recently in town for an Austin City Limits show, the ladies signed a ten- foot guitar titled "Striking Texas Gold" by visual artist, Dianne Sonnenberg.
The unique guitar sculptures have been artistically designed by local and talented visual artists and will be placed throughout Austin in front of the city's landmarks and businesses through the Fall of 2007. Many of them depict favorite Texas scenes or artistic musical themes. Each is a one of a kind piece of art. The sculptures will then be auctioned off and will benefit four local charities: The Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM); The Austin Museum of Art (AMOA); American Youthworks; and the Austin Children's Museum.
