Yamaha Cares Exhibit Logo 2022 (2)_edited.png

Welcome to our second annual Yamaha Cares Upcycled Guitar Exhibit! This exhibition primarily features upcycled guitars with a few other instruments in the mix. Each instrument has been reinvented into a new art form, while simultaneously being kept out of a landfill. The idea for this exhibit stems from the Yamaha Cares program. Yamaha Cares is, “an employee based initiative dedicated to charitable works to promote education, arts, health and human services, and community development in the areas where its employees live and work as well as to spread the gift of music to people throughout the U.S.” We cannot thank Yamaha enough for donating all the instruments to each organization involved in this exhibition. This exhibition acts as a fundraiser for organizations providing musical services.
