In September, 2022, Flaminio Antonio’s “Comforting Melody” sculpture, a guitar crafted entirely from scrap metal, was installed near the Armadillo Ranch and Kinfolks in downtown Manitou Springs on a one year contract. The piece won CRANE’s prestigious Art Excellence award, and has since become a beloved part of Manitou’s streetscape. It is time for the sculpture to move on – unless we can raise the discounted $6,000 purchase price and save the guitar for all who live and visit Manitou Springs! Please help us raise the money to keep this lovely sculpture on the Avenue for decades to come. We have 2 anonymous donors willing to match up to $1,500 in donations, so when you give, your gift will be doubled!
