AIR GUITAR -- Carrboro sculptor Mike Roig, right, was awarded the $5,000 grand prize in the 2008 Temporary Outdoor Sculpture Competition and Exhibition held by Cary Visual Art, Inc. Roig's sculpture, 'Air Guitar,' was selected by as the winner of the event, sponsored by CVA with the support of the Town of Cary. The 17-foot-tall, crescent-shaped steel guitar includes strings designed to be played by a gust of wind or plucked by visitors. It is on display at the Cary Town Hall Campus along with the other nine finalists in the CVA show. Roig lives in Carrboro with his wife, author and illustrator Clay Carmichael. 'Air Guitar engages the viewer not only through its visuals but through its obvious need and desire to be touched...indeed played,' said competition juror Hank Foreman. 'The craftspersonship is impeccable with superb construction and finish.' Foreman is director and chief curator of the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts in Boone, NC. The show will remain at Cary Town Hall Campus on 316 N. Academy Street through June 18, 2009.
