'Medieval to Metal: The Art & Evolution of the Guitar' is an exhibition developed by the National Guitar Museum in the US. Featuring 40 guitars spanning 400 years, 'Medieval to Metal' traces the guitar's beginnings in Asia and Europe through today's blues, country, and rock'n'roll. From the intricately inlaid Moorish oud to the modern Italian design of the Eko and transparent acrylic body of California's BC Rich guitars, the exhibition takes visitors through the history and design of an object that is one of the most recognisable objects on the planet.

The exhibition also includes illustrations of historically important guitar designs from noted artist Gerard Huerta, and photographs of acclaimed musicians and their guitars by Neil Zlozower, one of the world's premiere concert photographers.

Exclusive to Upper Hutt. Entry by donation.
