Daisy Rock Sponsors the Wildwood Festival's Art Guitar & Auction (5/18/07-5/20/07)
Daisy Rock is proud to sponsor the Wildflower Art & Music Festival\'s Art Guitar & Auction.
Held in Richardson, Texas (near Dallas), The Wildflower Art & Music Festival draws over 50,000 attendees each year. This year\'s festival is scheduled for May 18th-20th, and will feature live performances by Better Than Ezra, The Family Stone Experience, Grand Funk Railroad, Shooter Jennings, John Waite, Eddie Money, Fastball, The Romantics, Foghat, Le Freak, Morris Day and The Time, and more. The festival also features strolling entertainers, buskers and acrobats, lots of interactive displays and exhibits, the Wildflower Marketplace, the City of Richardson Petting Zoo, the Taste of Texas Food Court, and The Wildflower Art Guitar & Auction.
The Wildflower Art & Guitar Auction has won both state and international awards for “Best New Fund-Raising Program.” Festival sponsors, Richardson junior high and high school students, celebrities, sports figures and artists are all invited to enter a decorated guitar for the auction. Guitar entries, either electric or acoustic, are transformed, painted, tiled, airbrushed or even gilded in gold by the artists who decorate them. The finished guitars are then put on display in the Eisemann Center for sale during a silent auction held throughout the duration of the Festival. Proceeds from the auction benefit the NETWORK of Community Ministries and the fine art programs in the secondary level of the Richardson Independent School District.
Daisy Rock has donated over a half dozen guitars for artists to decorate and enter into the auction. The guitars will be unveiled during the Festival in May.
