Guitars decorated for Blues Fest

MARQUETTE – The Marquette Area Blues Society invites all area music lovers, artists, business owners and MABS members to decorate a wooden guitar for display on light poles along the lakeshore during August and the Blues Fest, which takes place Aug. 29-31.

The guitars must be painted on both sides with exterior grade paint or embellishments. No political slogans, alcohol or tobacco references, or obscene language permitted. The words “Blues Fest” must be incorporated somewhere on the guitar.

The cost is $15 per guitar or $10 for MABS members, and the guitars will be returned to the artists after display, if that is the wish. Guitars may be picked up starting July 23 at Marquette Wallpaper & Paint, 115 S. Third St, and must be returned there by Saturday, Aug. 9.

Those with questions can call Mark Hamari at 906-235-9690.
