The Summit Federal Credit Union invites the public to contribute to a Community Canvas at Artist Row Sunday September 18th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the City of Rochester Public Market. The Summit Federal Credit Union is the primary sponsor of Artist Row, a juried art show, sale and event featuring over 200 artists as well as musical entertainment and food trucks. Admission to Artist Row is free.
The Summit’s Community Canvas starts as merely a blank canvas on an easel, but anyone attending Artist Row who wishes to paint something on it may do so. The resulting art piece, which shows the collaborative contributions of all those who lent a creative hand, will be displayed at The Summit’s Main/Winton branch in the weeks after Artist Row.
“As a locally-grown credit union, we are proud to support the City of Rochester Public Market and all it provides our community,” said Twanda Christensen, Marketing Manager for The Summit. “Artist Row gives us a chance to celebrate local creativity, and our Community Canvas is a fun way for people to get into the spirit of this lively event.”
Since 2012, The Summit Federal Credit Union has been a leading supporter of the City of Rochester Public Market, including the Monthly Healthy Tasting, Artist Row and the Market Trolley. 2016 is the 12th Annual Artist Row, planned each year by the Friends of the Rochester Public Market. Besides the support of The Summit Federal Credit Union, Artist Row receives additional support from the City of Rochester and other local sponsors.
