This clock guitar was designed and fabricated for the 2012 Cleveland GuitarMania Auction. The event, Hosted by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, raises money for United Way of Cleveland and the Rock Hall Education programs. It was showcased at the top of the grand staircase of the Tower City Mall in Downtown Cleveland. The artist’s original design for the guitar was selected by event Super-Sponsor Key Bank. This is the second time Key Bank has selected Nick DiGiorgio as the artist for this event. Back in 2007, Nick designed and painted vibrant colors and abstract shapes for the musically inspired Picasso guitar titled “Three Musicians.” Nick’s first guitar design in 2004, We Built This City, was sponsored by Turner Construction.
