Cleveland, Ohio-- home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has also hosted an event called Guitar Mania. Here's more, right from their website:

"GuitarMania® is a Greater Cleveland community public art project that has raised more than $1.5 million for its two benefiting charities – United Way of Greater Cleveland and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum’s education fund. The project consists of large, oversize Fender® Stratocaster® guitars that are creatively transformed into works of art by local artists and national celebrities and displayed on the city streets of Cleveland for residents and visitors to enjoy from June through November 2007. Corporations, organizations and individuals sponsor the guitars and select form a variety of local artists to paint, sculpt, or decorate them. Celebrity artists are also recruited to paint and decorate guitars. At the end of the display period the guitars are auctioned at a gala event at the Rock Hall, unless the corporate sponsors buy back their guitars for permanent display at their company."

The one pictured here, from Guitar Mania 2004, is titled "Outdoor Rock" by artist George Kocar. There are dozens of these giant Strat shaped art works, and you can see them all at
