The chairman of “Music is Art”, Ryan Casullo, died in a motorcycle crash in May. Mike Doktor, manager of the Guitar Center told News 4, “This year, we started with Ryan, who we unfortunately lost. So when Phil contacted me to resurrect the project, it was sort of a no-brainer.”

The auction starts at 5 p.m. Thursday at Chef’s Restaurant on Seneca Street.
