New! Collaborations withAfter teaming with musician/actor Meat Loaf to create a sculpted guitar for a fundraising auction, Mary Ouimette-Kinney is designing a second, more elaborate guitar for the rock star. Guitars for Hope, a public art project to benefit Kelly for Kids, Hunters Hope, and WNED Public Television, was inspired in part by Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly. For more about Guitars for Hope visit guitarsforhope.org or to view the online auction, visit the gala audtion page.
The guitars were designed and fabricated by Mary Ouimette-Kinney, in collaboration with Meat Loaf. The seven foot long guitars are shaped to look racecars, complete with airbrushed flames, carved fenders, a hand-carved bat hood ornament, and an original mural.
