Recently, a one-of-a-kind guitar structure was installed at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport. American Family Insurance, presenting sponsor of Summerfest, unveiled the artpiece in front of the pre-security Summerfest Marketplace inside the airport. 

In conjunction with the installation, Summerfest is hosting a sweepstakes on its Facebook page for the chance to win two tickets to any at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater during Summerfest 2021.

The contest starts today and runs through 3 p.m. on June 1. Go to to enter. 

The new guitar piece is built from a combination of steel and aluminum with painted blocks. The guitar is 58” wide and 109” high and was designed to celebrate music and connect people and places worldwide. It also reflects the ongoing partnership between Milwaukee World Festival, Inc., Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport and Paradies Lagardère, the leading airport concessionaire that operates Summerfest Marketplace.

The sculpture features the logo of the new American Family Insurance Amphitheater, the $51.3MM renovated music venue that's scheduled to host its first concert this summer.
