Gibson Guitartown is a worldwide art event that brings together well known designers, artists and musicians to customize a 10' Les Paul Guitar. In 2014, the famous festival will grace Av. Reforma, Mexico City's most beautiful and iconic avenue with 40+ Gibson Guitars inspired by music made in Mexico.
I chose to pay homage to the most important musical festival in the history of Mexico, the Festival Rock & Ruedas Avándaro.
It was held in 1971, following the killings of many innocent students and intellectuals at the October 2nd strike of the student movement in 1968.
As part of the counterculture movement know as La Onda, Avándaro was a celebration of freedom, peace, love, life, ecology, experimental drugs and free love. It brought together some 500,000 people for two days filled with music and good vibes.
