Daisy Rock inducted into Musical Instruments Museum
(Dave Molter | Posted 2010-04-29)
Daisy Rock Girl Guitars, the original girl-guitar company, inducted into the Musical Instruments Museum (MIM), a 195,000-square-foot facility in Northern Phoenix that’s billed as the world’s first global musical instrument museum, on April 24, 2010.
Daisy Rock’s original star-shaped electric guitar prototype model will be among the first instruments visitors of MIM will see, featured prominently inside the museum’s Guitar Galley. MIM’s Media Relations Manager, Alan di Perna stated, “The Guitar Gallery is one of MIM's orientation galleries. We wanted to greet guests with an instrument that is familiar to many and widely loved. But the exhibit also illustrates how this seemingly familiar instrument has taken on many varied, sometimes surprising, and frequently beautiful forms over the course of time and in different parts of the world. As such, the distinctive style of the Daisy Rock guitar on exhibit helps us to tell this story.”
“When I started Daisy Rock Girl Guitar, I wanted to change the guitar community for my daughters, and for girls all around the world,” commented Tish Ciravolo, Daisy Rock Founder and President. “With the induction of the original Daisy guitar inside the Museum of Making Music in 2006, and now the induction of the first Star girl guitar in the Musical Instruments Museum, I’m so honored to see Daisy Rock Girl Guitars recognized so prominently and showcased for the world to see. It’s yet another sign that the girl guitar revolution is a historic and important shift in society and culture. Rock the world girls!”
