A community arts project for the Greater Rochester area and all of western New York
ROCHESTER, N.Y. February 20, 2013 – Dunn Tire is joining Rochester’s artistic, business, and golf community in “Golf Balls on Parade”, a summer-long community arts event. As part of the program, 5-foot tall fiberglass golf balls on tees will be on display throughout the Greater Rochester and Western New York area, including select Dunn Tire locations, throughout the spring and summer. The golf balls will feature original designs by local artists.
Dunn Tire is seeking votes from the public to assist with the final design selection for their currently “blank” golf ball sculpture. Three designs from four Rochester artists are currently being considered for the Dunn Tire sponsored golf ball. The artists submitting the designs are Nicole Scanlon, Chris Pallace and Kevin Serwacki, and Lisa Robinson.
“This is a fantastic community event supporting local charities and local artists and we’re proud to be a part of it” said Chuck Haring, Director of Marketing & Advertising for Dunn Tire, “We can’t wait to get our golf ball designed and get this event underway. We look forward to the community’s feedback on our ball design.”
Dunn Tire potential ball designs can be viewed and voted for at www.dunntireblog.com/design or on the Dunn Tire Facebook page . The voting opens on February 20th and runs through March 6, 2013. The entire voting process is completely anonymous. The winning design will be announced on March 8, 2013.
