Eiteljorg Museum to open guitar exhibit

INDIANAPOLIS — More than 130 guitars owned by greats including Roy Rogers, Charlie Christian, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Woody Guthrie, Buddy Holly, Les Paul and others will be displayed together for the first time ever, when “Guitars! Roundups to Rockers,” presented by Eli Lilly & Co., opens at The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art on Saturday, March 9.

The exhibit explores the Western connections of guitars and artists who have provided the soundtrack for America. The experience, including interactive content, is guaranteed to appeal to guitar gearheads, musicians and everyday music lovers of genres from Western swing to wailing rock, thrashing punk to bouncing jazz.

On opening day (and the second Saturday of each month) guests can live out their rock star dreams. Get a rock ’n’ roll airbrush tattoo or a guitar-wielding caricature from artist Mike Altman. Plus, listen to local bands and take in a guitar-related flick. Cowboy Celtic’s afternoon performance, beginning at 2 p.m., is included in museum admission.
