50 Music Greats from 50 States in License Plate Art: A Reflection on Music History

Peter Geiger's avatar Peter Geiger Vote Code: 67365

I used approximately 1320 license plates to create 50 3-D sculptures, which are exact replicas of iconic guitar shapes. Each represents a musician or band from their home state. This exhibit is a reflection on music history that highlights the many similarities between license plates and the music artists. They travel endlessly; they are colorful in character and style. The reflective qualities of the license plates are used to tell their music story. My collection also transcends generations and genres. Like music, it brings people together in celebration. A Michigan tag is included in each of the 50 sculptures in tribute to the people of Grand Rapids and ArtPrize10.
