Gibson Guitars

Orlando seems to periodically promote the arts by asking artists to decorate fiberglass lizards, busts and or guitars. In 2009  seven foot tall Gibson guitars were put on display at . One of these guitars is still on display inside City Arts factory near the restrooms.

This year busts of the Bride of Frankenstein are being supplied for decoration. The "Its Alive" Project is a non profit charity event benefiting St Jude Children's Research fund. The last "It's Alive" project had featured Frankenstein Busts at City Arts Factory in 2001. 

The call for artist submissions is now open for this year's Bride of Frankenstein. Due to increased interest and returning artists, not all applicants can be accepted. All applications are to be submitted via email to: Please put your name in the title of the email.  (Example: Its Alive Project - Artist: (Your Name) A concept of your piece must be submitted for approval.
