In the lead up to our 25th anniversary event 25 and Live we will be carrying out a whole host of exciting activities to celebrate this milestone achievement and to raise funds for our continued activity.
Today we would like to introduce you to the first of these activities, "Pimp My Uke".
Community Music Wales have challenged leading Welsh artists to design and paint a ukulele in their own unique style. A number of exciting and diverse artists have accepted the challenge, and progress on the ukuleles has already begun. From steampunk to impressionism, we hope to have an extremely varied selection of painted ukuleles that will be unlike any ukulele that you've seen before!
Once the project is completed, we will be displaying the artworks in a gallery for everyone to come and see. Later on in the year we will hold an online auction, where the highest bidder will become the owner of a one of a kind piece of (playable) art.
We are incredibly excited to see the work the artists produce, and we think you will be too! So keep an eye out in the coming weeks for more information on the artists and the ukuleles they are painting.
