After months of construction work, the Sunset Strip Beautification Project in West Hollywood has been completed. And to celebrate, a re-grand opening block party was thrown last night. The event also helped introduce a new public art project called GuitarTown, which can be compared to Chicago Cows on Parade or L.A.'s Community of Angels.

It features over 25 ten-foot tall fiberglass Gibson Les Paul model guitars that were each taken over by an artist. The end project? Some you'll really like, some you definitely won't. A handful of them seen last night can be found above and if you're going to the Sunset Strip Music Festival later this month, they'll be around for that.
