More than two dozen giant Gibson guitar sculptures designed in honor of the Doors, Motley Crue, Jimi HendrixOzzy Osbourne and others have been decorating various spots on Los Angeles’ Sunset Strip for the better part of a year, and now those 20-foot-tall axes will be auctioned for charity.

The Gibson GuitarTown public art exhibition was unveiled in August 2010 to celebrate the musicians, local personalities and prominent nightlife spots associated with the Sunset Strip. It featured a total of 26 Gibson guitar sculptures designed by local visual artists and displayed at prominent and historic locales on the Strip. Other rockers honored include KissSlash, Peter Frampton and Beach Boy Brian Wilson, who was on hand for the ribbon-cutting.

Now the art guitars are going under the hammer on Dec. 3 at Julien’s Auctions Beverly Hills and online at www.julienslive.com. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Los Angeles Youth Network, the West Hollywood Arts & Cultural Commission and the West Hollywood Library.

“The guitars celebrated the boulevard’s history while also giving local artists the opportunity to showcase their talents in a one-of-a-kind setting,” said Todd Steadman of the Sunset Strip Business Association. ”The art guitars added to the Sunset Strip experience, and we are pleased that the proceeds from the GuitarTown charity auction will benefit and inspire countless individuals in theLos Angeles area and beyond.”

Other cities that have hosted GuitarTown exhibitions include Nashville, Miami, London and Austin, Texas.
